JTP (Day One)

(yawn~) Welcome to JTP
Daily Board Meeting (assign task to do)

On your first day of arrival, you will need to do swim test with JTP staff to make sure you will be able to go for boat patrol, as sometimes might require you to swim to the beach when the boat couldn't reach the shore when low tides.  

Boat patrol at 7:15am
Here we go looking for fresh eggs!

There are one highlight daily activity from Monday to Sunday:

Monday- Hiking

Tuesday- Recycle+Gardening
Wednesday- Cooking
Thursday- Beach Cleaning

Friday- Free Day
Saturday- Turtle Day

Sunday- Clean JTP

We're so lucky to see the birth of extremely rare albino turtle in the evening same day of our arrival. The last time they saw albino turtle was 10 years ago. It has now been released into the sea, but survival rate is apparently not so good due to their inability to camouflage. 

Got rushed out from the shower to see albino turtle

Tourists and volunteers were so excited to see them
Releasing baby turtles into the sea at 7:15pm
Dinner time! 

We're actually quite free after lunch at 12:30 noon. You can go for snorkeling, kayak, jetty jump, swimming etc as long as you finished your tasks of the day. Sometimes, you may need to do night patrol at 10pm along the beach. If not, you can lying down on the beach and look at the night sky full of stars, you may get to see milky way too! SO BEAUTIFUL! 

Turtle is very sensitive to light, only red light is allow at the beach

You feel like want to have beer 1 or 2 at night?
Sure, you can find it! There is a resort right next to JTP and Pondok Cafe which selling Tiger in can. But not too much, because you might need to wake up very early to do beach patrol or boat patrol on the next day.
