Diving masters (well… almost)

So it happened…

Coming to the Philippines, I was sure that I’d love to take diving course. Now, when two months of our stay as volunteers have passed, finally, a perfect moment to do so appeared.

 All together: the volunteers from Bohol and some extra active ones from Manila ;)) plus our great mentor Joannie, we went to a little paradisiac island called Pamilacan to take a four-day-long course. The weather was perfect, the instructors were experienced and the group was fun – nothing could be any better!

After four days of
diving, sunbathing, reef watching and learning, we passed our exam for Open Water Divers and now all the great diving spots are waiting for us!

Other animals

For us, volunteers of the Tarsier Foundation, Bohol is all about tarsiers. However, there are other interesting animals living here – for example giant bats with a wingspan of 1.5?1.7 m (more info:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Giant_golden-crowned_flying_fox) or Philippine flying lemur (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Philippine_flying_lemur). Obviously, those animals are quite difficult to spot. No worries – if you’re not lucky enough, you may always go to see macaques. Some of them are
crab-eating but for sure they will not resist if they are offered a banana!

Hi! My name is Kamila…

Hi! My name is Kamila and I come from Poland. I’m really happy I can be part of EVS project in Philippines. This amazing country gives me opportunity to be close with nature, get to know other culture and friendly local people. According the project, I work and live in Philippine Tarsier Sanctuary in Corella (Bohol) with other volunteers from Poland, Italy and Spain. Working in sanctuary as a tour guide gives me opportunity to stay close with nature what I really appreciate because I have a  great interest in biology and geography area.
