Perhentian – Snorkeling with Ecoteer

 

I stayed four beautiful days in Perhentian with Ecoteer community.

If you join in the volunteer program you have many opportunity to discover the sea world, learning about environment, the plight of sea turtles, see the baby sharks and the underwater world doing snorkeling.

I spent lovely time with the volunteers and interns and I really appreciated the hard work they do there. It is truly difficult to educate the locals about recycling and environmental protection because they aren’t used to this and they don’t understand why they have to change their habits.

In Perhentian I did snorkeling for my first time! Was an amazing experience.

After I need time to realize what I saw under the sea. It is a completely different world with mysterious rules that I don’t understand but that fascinate me!

Every thing moves in perfection harmony with the surrounding, flora and fauna are closely related and you understand how is delicate this beautiful ecosystem!
