Scuba divers, snorkelers, ocean lovers, casual tourists, and anyone else with time and resources to spare, let's bring voluntourism to Les Village.
The fisherfolks of Les Village has turned away from the use of potassium cyanide to catch ornamental fish which devastated the coral reefs of the village and adopted their own environmentally friendly and sustainable way of catching aquarium fishes.
For more than a decade now, the village fisherfolks also worked on rehabilitating their coral reefs, experimenting on various media to host their coral garden. They now have a thriving coral reef to show for it. And with the help of voluntourism, they are ready to expand it some more.
The fisherfolks of Les Village has became a model for and educator to other fishing village communities in Bali on both sustainable ornamental fishing and reef rebuilding.
From these successes, they launched a community based marine ecotourism program centered on reef rebuilding and sustainable ornamental fishing complimented by the natural charms of Les Village -- a torrential bath at the village's Yeh Mempeh waterfalls, traditional Hindu Balinese culture with its many temples, ceremonies, subak system (irrigation), traditional salt making, and more.
See what they have accomplished, learn by sharing and participating in their own experience.
Come to Bali. Come to Les Village.
