BAREFOOT CONSERVATION LIMITED
Barefoot Conservation is a not-for-profit organisation in the stunning Raja Ampat, Indonesia. Their mission is to apply the skillset of volunteers to aid the community, scientific research, and preservation of the world's most bio-diverse region. In turn, trip-makers gain practical experience and the reward of making a significant difference to the island. Your investment will be used to purchase a boat and facilitate further expansion, and may earn you an exciting reward!
Make a difference. See a difference. Be the difference.
We are a non-profit organisation, so the fees that our volunteers pay are used to fund the projects we embark on. Each project is designed to meet both the immediate and long term needs of the island and its inhabitants, and we work in partnership with the Raja Ampat government. Aside from marine conservation, environmentally, this extends to river and beach clean-ups, renewable energy programmes, and climate change research. We encourage our volunteers to also engage with the islanders through teaching English and educating them on environmental issues. Over-tourism is an extremely damaging factor contributing to the environmental crisis, but our mission seeks to encourage an entrepreneurial spirit in the community so as to discourage unsustainable ways of living and combat poverty.
The money raised in this campaign will go towards the purchase of a new boat, something that is paramount to our diving excursions. We also intend to extend our cause to an additional location, Komodo. This is a fast-growing market that is nowhere near saturated, so we intend to take advantage of this. As a 'thanks' for your pledge, we are offering rewards - you can even join us on our stunning island and see for yourself how your money is used!
