My time on Pom Pom Island could not have been any more perfect. Arriving at the island I couldn't believe my eyes; the island was spotless and clean and simply stunning.
I worked as a turtle volunteer for two weeks and that amount of time was no way long enough as I fell in love with island life. Surveying the turtles was amazing, getting to see and be so close to such incredible animals. I felt like the work I did was useful and was documented to then be continued by more turtlers that join the project and I really felt a part of the team.
I made some very good friends and everyone was so welcoming and friendly from the moment I arrived. I am jealous of everyone who is staying there for a longer time than I did as they really are living the dream!
Everyone at TRACC had the environment in mind, from doing daily chores to ensure that the camp was clean to doing beach clean ups where all rubbish from the beach was collected and sorted. Everyone at TRACC was enthusiastic and proactive in their approach to the conservation of the area and this made it an amazing project to be part of.
I can't thank TRACC enough for the incredible opportunity and for the lifelong memories I have taken away with me. I would recommend this project to everyone of all ages as people at the project ranged from 19 to 60, it really is accessible to all.
I hope to be back in the very near future!
