- Perhentian Islands
View Other Details
Turtles nest here starting in March and April, peaking in June July August, and then finished by November. Tioman is a semi-remote Island, so you need to be especially careful and safe while here. We want you to research about Sea turtle conservation before you come here so you can be familiar with the conservation issues sea turtles face here on Tioman and world-wide. It will help put your trip here in context. JTP is different than a hostel, as we have activities and work which we expect you want to get involved in. However JTP is different than an all-inclusive program, as we don’t plan activities for your whole day- we need your help.
We have a minimum stay requirement of 4 nights …otherwise the time is too fast to be very useful.
If you are a long-term volunteer here (from a few weeks to a couple of months) it’s possible for you to conduct your own project
while here. If this is something you are interested in please let us know before you come so we can start to develop your idea(s)
together. We want to facilitate your ideas as much as possible. Beginning a dialogue with us about what people have done in the
past, as well as looking through photos and resources online will help a lot. You don’t have to come up with your own project if
you don’t want to, and you can simply become involved with everything else we do on a daily basis.
If you are a short-term volunteer here (few days to a few weeks) then you can just help us out in whatever is needed to get done
on a daily basis. In addition to the conservation work this can include: taking care of our resident blind Green turtle, keeping our
facilities clean, gardening, maintenance, construction, giving turtle talks to the general public, and more. Or if you are ambitious
and have a project idea, that is ok as well.
