Volunteers Frequently Asked Questions

north bali reef conservation - faq

Volunteer  at the North Bali Reef Conservation  will be both one of the most rewarding and challenging experiences. You will be immersed in an environment where the cultural norms may be very different to what you are use to. However, through volunteering you will gain an insight into an ancient culture that most tourists will never have the opportunity to experience. Below are questions and answers for some further general volunteering questions:

Volunteers usually work from 09:00 to 12:00 with a break for lunch before starting again at 14:00 and working until around 16:00. Due to the nature of the work volunteers do and the different roles available these times are flexible and are likely to differ depending on what is planned for that day. For example, on days where we deploy reef structures volunteers often have an earlier start.
Yes, volunteers are free from Friday to Sunday and are encouraged to travel, taking in all Bali has to offer.
We will provide a transfer from the Denpasar airport to Ubud where you will stay until Monday morning. On Monday there will be transport organised for you from the home stay in Ubud to our centre in Tianyar.
You should aim to arrive on the weekend before your first week volunteering. This will give you some time to recover from your journey and explore Ubud before you travel to Tianyar on monday morning. We understand that flights may be cheaper on different days and so if you wish to come earlier you may have to fund your own accomodation until the scheduled transport to Tianyar.

As a North Bali Reef Conservation volunteer the main role for now is the construction of artificial reefs (https://northbalireefconservation.com/artificial-reef-structures.html). We recognise that some volunteers may not be suited to this kind of work. Different volunteers have different strengths and there are other facets of conservation that we are trying to expand upon which may suit these strengths. Other roles we are keen for volunteers to uptake are education and awareness.
