Great volunteering & stay at a resort in Fiji

This is a really unique volunteer opportunity because you spend your days giving back, but you get to stay at a very nice resort for your time off.
For our volunteer project we helped build a playground in a village that was donated by a school in New Zealand. The other volunteers were from around the world and all had such a passion for what they were doing. Each day we had a check in with the team to talk about our highlights for the day. Overall, I was super impressed by Vinaka!
So fun getting to help out with marine conservation!

This is a real hands on experience where you are really helping improve the marine life in Fiji. The coordinators are wonderful and have an extensive plan on how to accomplish protecting this reef. The projects varied for us from counting fish for data sets to collecting a spiny sea star that eats all the coral. We geared up in our dive gear, hoped on a boat and off we went collecting the sea stars (they are quite poisonous so we had to be really careful).
The people in Fiji are wonderful, and one of the best parts is you are staying at a resort! That makes it nice because after volunteering you can relax, hang out on the beach and you always have great food!
