Extremely grateful for the two months I spent interning at LTTW, much of which was spent based on Lang Tengah. I’ve met and worked with a team of wonderful, mutually inspiring people during my time here who I’m sure I’ll be good friends with for years to come. I gained exposure to conservation field work, patrolling for and collecting data on nesting mothers, relocating nests, and conducting nest inspections.
Camp life is laid-back but with adventures if you so wish to find them. My free time on the island spent cliff jumping, hiking, snorkelling and free diving are as precious to me as the gained experience with hands-on conservation work; together these grounded and connected me back to both my priorities and the natural world, which was wholly welcome after months of lockdown and restricted movement due to COVID.
