Nungwi is a stunning yet tranquil coastal village perched on the northern tip of Zanzibar. It is home to some of the island’s finest beaches and an incredible coral reef. You’ll have the chance to live like a local in a beachside bungalow, getting an authentic taste of Zanzibar's vibrant culture while you’re volunteering and making a difference.
IVHQ’s turtle volunteer placement is at a long-established conservation program where injured sea turtles are treated and looked after at a natural lagoon. The turtles are released several times per year and the project also breeds turtle eggs at a safe location until the baby turtles hatch. Young turtles are kept at various pools and at the lagoon and are released into the ocean once they reach a size that guarantees a higher chance of survival in the wild.
