You will be based in our Volunteer ‘Big House’, a shared accommodation with five same -sex rooms each with two beds. Here you will enjoy breathtaking views of Tofo bay, as well as easy access on foot to the Foundation offices and the restaurant. Your Project Coordinators reside within the lodge and are on call 24 hours a day. The lodge is open from 7 AM until 11 PM and has 24h security on site, with further staff members who are always happy to help.

You have a choice of meals from the menu each day, which you will eat in the lodge restaurant by the beach. Sometimes we may decide to have a barbecue, then this will be done either at the house or another outdoor area. All food is cooked fresh each day, should you have any specific dietary requirements; please let us know before you arrive. A lot of our staff and volunteers are vegetarians or vegans, and so we are used to catering to this.
