ABOUT our community partner
This organization was established in October 2011 with the aim to bring about the recovery of depleted wild populations of turtles, with particular reference to freshwater turtles, in Malaysia through partnerships with like-minded organizations, individuals and local communities as well as through its own programs.
You will work closely with the organization in a small village in Chukai where they will help document the research, conservation, education and public outreach work that they do. The goal is to create a series of images that will be displayed gallery-style at a major conservation event in July. The event is a symposium highlighting the successful work of local conservation initiatives to help motivate other organizations to engage in conservation work. Photos will also be used for other general promotional material.
