Do you like to travel the world and explore remote areas? Enjoy working with kids, art, and nature?
When a local need demands it, AlTo leads a small group of international travelers on a tour to visit Tompotika and assist with conservation projects there. Most tours last about 15 days. Service tours in past years include projects to help out with scientific surveys of, respectively, tarsiers and butterflies; painting large wildlife murals on school walls; cleaning beaches of harmful trash, and more. The trips include time working side-by-side with villagers on the assigned task as well as plenty of time exploring Tompotika’s rainforests and snorkeling its coral gardens., as well as, of course, observing maleos, sea turtles, bats, and other wildlife.
We currently do not have Eco-Service tours planned, but please check back later for updates. If you would like to be notified of future tours, please e-mail us of your interest at: email@example.com.
