“The only way to do great work is to love what you do.”

– Steve Jobs


Turtle Conservation Society of Malaysia (TCS) is a small, young but dynamic organisation, with activities ranging from multi-disciplinary research projects to working with the local womenfolk to produce marketable batik-themed products. Our work-type and work-load vary throughout the year, from camping out at the riverbank and micro-chipping terrapins, to measuring newly-emerged terrapin hatchlings, to conducting Turtle Camps with students to taking guests on Turtle Discovery Trips to managing our social media sites to writing grant proposals and press releases.

We accept interns who are able to stay for a minimum of one month, which we believe, benefits both the intern and TCS. Interns receive a stipend depending on the projects that they are involved in.

Thank you for your interest in joining TCS as an intern. Our internship opportunity is open only to Malaysians who subscribe to the objectives of the Society. Due to the nature of our work and our limited resources, we are only able to accept and provide training to Malaysians at the moment. If you are a non-Malaysian, please explore other internship opportunities at the bottom of this page.

Please fill up the following form for us to know you better. If you have any questions regarding the internship, feel free to contact Dr. Chen Pelf Nyok at [email protected] or you may WhatsApp us at 011 – 5417 3577.

For non-Malaysians, please explore other internship opportunities at the bottom of this page.
Priority will be given to TCS members because this is one of the benefits that we offer only to our members.
Please provide a short description of your education background, i.e. university/college, programme, major.
Please provide the dates that you are available, and the duration of your proposed internship. We only accept interns who are available for at least 1 month.
Click or drag a file to this area to upload.
Please upload PDF files only. Maximum file size 1MB.


We’re unable to accept many interns at the same time due to timing and housing availability. However, we have put together other options for you. These are conservation organisations that are also doing an amazing job in saving wildlife/turtles in the country.

Please contact the following organisations directly if you’re keen to participate in their programmes.

We wish you all the best!
