When it first arrived on the project I thought it was a bit daunting at first, made lots of friends from all over the world, it was a eye opening experience. For me the most enjoyable part of the project was being with the children it was the highlight of the trip.
The project could be improved if the timekeeping of the people in the country was better. I recommend the future volunteers do the project you can't understand what the project is like until you actually do it. It is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

I arrived in the country early so had a few days to relax before I met up with the others on the Panda project. We spent a couple of days with the interpreter who took us around and showed us the wilderness and the mountains. For me the experience of being on a project in a group and with the young people was much better than what I thought it would be, the project was very well run and there were lots of activities available to do in the evening if you chose to.

For me the most enjoyable part of the project was being with the pandas feeding them preparing the food and cleaning their area. The project is not only for youngsters there is no age limit and no matter what age you are the volunteers and staff really do make you feel welcome and take you into the group.

The first few days of camp were about meeting the people who ran the camp everyone was very welcoming we played lots of games before starting on our conservation project.

I most enjoy the conservation work it was really good it was such incredible experience everybody was very friendly and welcoming. I believe the project could be improved by providing more funding towards the research of conservation, the equipment that is used and towards the local government in the country

I recommend that future volunteers google camping and learn more about camping before they come out on the project also make sure you bring lots of sun cream and a quick drying towel.

Enjoyed the project and felt especially welcomed by the staff. I learnt a lot from them and thoroughly enjoyed their company. A brilliant team made an amazing experience. Diving sites were the best I have visited and saw some of the most amazing sights of my life. I won't forget this unbelievable experience.

Had the most amazing placement - the Fiji Sun was more than I expected and I get to do and see so much! Excellent and I don't think people reading the website really understand this. My whole experience was amazing, the lodge is great and makes you feel really at home. I made some great friends, both with Frontier and in Fiji.
