    What else ...

    As volunteers will be fed by the local families and the new community tourism program is not yet a business a daily fee is required to cover the costs of food and lodging.

    This fee is 40 Malaysian ringgit per day per person which you pay directly to your family or local host. This is to cover costs of 3 meals and a small conservation fee that funds turtle patrols.
