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.

The project was a new experience. A lot of hard work but I think it's something that builds character. I'm hapy I did it, I feel a lot more world wise. After this I can do anything and eat anything! Thanks you Chloe for all the hard work you put in to the trail.

This company is a scam. We overpaid for the room and board at the sanctuary. Other volunteers come directly and pay a fraction of the price. They say they have 24 hr customer service but they NEVER answer the phone NEVER. They took a couple days to answer my email. The sanctuary has 75+ volunteers and they make us starve. They gave us literally two pancakes for breakfast and some chips and beans for dinner. We are not allowed to ask for a second serving. Most people go snack on their own budget since we are all still hungry. Three of the four bathrooms are broken. I am still here at the moment and they haven't been been fixed for a week since I arrived. Keep in mind there are over 70 volunteers here. We try to find stuff to do but there is nothing to do for all of us. They keep getting mad if we just stand around. We work long days and are not allowed outside of the property to even go visit other places except on our day off once every seven days. I planned on being here for four weeks but am so disappointed that I am trying to leave asap. They will not respond to us or negotiate any sort of refund or credit for the three more weeks I have left. All I am asking at this point is to not make us starve. This is human rights abuse. Do not keep bringing in more volunteers and make us suffer. When I asked where does the $2000 I paid for the month go they say they are working on "research" projects that require the funds. Nothing but a SCAM. Would not reccomend it ever. There are tons of volunteer opportunities around the world where they treat you right and I am happy working for. Frontier is not one of them.
