Help Save Tetepare
We need your help to save Tetepare - the last wild island of the Pacific. There are many ways you can help conserve Tetepare, and the island's precious rainforests, reefs and wildlife.
SUPPORT OUR CONSERVATION PROGRAM
We depend on donations from organisations and individuals to keep our conservation program running. We are raising money for tax deductable endowment funds based both in USA (Save Your World) and Australia (Conservation Ark), to continue our conservation work and give our conservation program long-term sustainability. Click here to help save Tetepare by making a donation to our endowment fund (include a comment on the paypal page that you wish your donation to go to Tetepare). Money raised will be used for conservation work including turtle monitoring and patrolling the Marine Protected Area, and will ensure the long-term stability and sustainability of our conservation project.
By supporting TDA, you will be joining with prominent environmental and aid organisations, such as WWF, NZAid, AusAID, Australian Volunteers International, Conservation International and the European Union as well as generous individuals who have chosen to support TDA's work to conserve Tetepare Island in recent years.
CONTRUBUTE TO OUR SCHOLARSHIP FUND
By making a donation to our scholarship fund you are helping to improve the lives of TDA members and their families. Providing educational scholarships is one way that TDA members are encouraged to conserve Tetepare Island and are highly valued by TDA members. Just $200 Aust provides a scholarship for one high school student for 1 year. $500 provides funding for a vocational scholarship allowing a young person to attend college in a regional centre.

VISIT OUR ECOLODGE
You can also support TDA by visiting the Tetepare Ecolodge. Ecotourists support our conservation program when they visit Tetepare and stay at the ecolodge. Your stay at the Tetepare Ecolodge will provide jobs for local people, and help TDA ensure Tetepare is protected for future generations. When you return, If you enjoyed your stay please use Trip Advisor to let others know about your experience.
SEND OR BRING OVER MUCH NEEDED EQUIPMENT
Gifts of rain-jackets and snorkel gear (including fins) for our rangers, marine monitors and drivers are always extremely welcome. Basic first aid equipment for staff and other equipment such as binoculars, laptops, GPS and tools are always in short supply. Whilst always adhering to national and international border and customs regulations, our eco-lodge team would be very grateful if you could bring some herbs and spices to the island, as our team of cooks are always keen to experiment with new tastes and flavours. Custom-approved vegetable seeds are gratefully received by women in the village as they grow almost all of their own food.
