My time in Tenerife!

I feel the trip was goo overall. I feel that there are many things to do on the island, but the heat sometimes does not help :). However, what we do for the whales, dolphins and the community is very good and made me happy. I think the introduction of fans in each room should become a necessity.

An Incredible Experience

I loved meeting new people and becoming so close to them in 3 weeks.
The staff are so friendly they felt like volunteers I am really going to miss them.
The balance of free time and set activity is excellent.
The organisation of the project is brilliant.
I will never forget the first time I saw a bottlenose dolphin and a pilot whale, an incredible sighting and you get to see them three times a week!
The project briefing at the beginning was very informative and I have come away knowing a lot more about the conservation of whales and dolphins, and methods being put in place for the future.

Conservation of Whales and Dolphins in Tenerife

I would’ve liked to know more about my role in the project, exactly what I would be doing day to day and the facilities of the house including information such as the lack of electricity, what sort of meals are offered and the fact that we cook ourselves therefore food may not always be available at the times you think and house chores etc…

The facilities came across as much more organised than they were (which is fine but I would’ve liked to have come a bit more prepared).

The boats were good but if the project had their own boats we would be able to focus more on the wildlife and less on helping and cleaning up after tourists…

If the project had utensils to pick up disgusting rubbish on the beaches we could’ve cleaned more.

The best aspects were the ones that were explained on the field brief – researching the whales and dolphins.

Overall, more utilities and better facilities would’ve improved the value for money on this project.

India teaching

My favourite aspect was seeing the children start to respond to some of the lessons we introduced and watching them enjoy themselves whilst playing games. The fact I was able to help out on two different projects was quite special and the memories I made were pretty unforgettable.

Wish I’d stayed longer than two weeks as the induction week felt too long and I wish I’d have spent more time on the actual project.

China panda breeding

Overall the experience on the China Panda Breeding project went well, but I was annoyed at having to pay extra for an airport transfer, when I was originally told that I wouldn’t have to pay for one before departing onto the project.
