A sneak preview of what to expect when you sign up as a volunteer in our Kemaman River Terrapin Research and Conservation Project :) You will learn and pick up some research skills, the “Geng Tuntung” will be ever-ready to help you, and most importantly, you get to do REAL conservation work. A la National Geographic one too!
Volunteer placement is on a first-come-first-served basis! :)
