Dear KL Changemakers,

Our initial plan to participate in a similar programme hosted by the Malaysian Nature Society (MNS) recently was unfortunately a no-go.

But thanks to your encouraging response to have our own programme, we are organising our very own Turtle Volunteer Trip for the first time ever!

This time, we will be heading to the Turtle Information Centre in Melaka for a 2D/1N trip, complete with a little bit of sightseeing in "The Historic State".
