If you treasure environment with rain forest, lakes and rivers with peace and tranquility and be able to admire some degree of isolation from the urban life, Our island which is in the heart of the 132 millions years old rain forest Temenggor a bit south of Belum National Park, in the middle of Temenggor lake, is the place you will enjoy and be able to find peace and harmony far away from every kind of pollution!
We are looking for Volunteers who can work in and enjoy the surrounding of pure, untouched nature, with a minimal of impact from the outside, you should have specific interest in gardening and landscape design, you do not need not be an expert in this field but one who has keen interest and willing to do some research work.
At the Moment we are planning and developing a few eco projects as well some building projects. Collecting Saplings from the rain forest around the lake with the speedboat, where they can not grow big and plant them on our Island, starting a eco-farming site up the Hill and build some ways as well as a big terrace. We have enough to do and enough space for creative minds to start their own little projects and make their own research, like some of our volunteers do regularly.
We try to have all the time about 3-4 Volunteers, but sometimes that doesnt work out, because we are really off the grid out here, that is also the reason we ask for at least minimum 2 weeks of your time, (Volunteers who can stay longer are always preferred) because you have to get out here, get dropped in the middle of nowhere and get picked up by boat from us to get into the deep rain forest where you will see wild elephants and get close to nature.
