Who are we?
Gili Eco Trust, or Yayasan Ekosistem Gili indah, is an NGO based on Gili Trawangan. It was founded in 2000 to protect the coral reefs around the Gili islands from destructive fishing. In 1999 local fishermen founded the SATGAS to patrol the waters around the three Gili islands. At that time there was a lot of dynamite and cyanide fishing, destroying all the coral and killing the aquatic life inhabiting the reefs. Coral reefs had been left in a disastrous state after the intense El Niño in 1997-1998. The local population reacted and started to organize patrols around the islands in order to eliminate and educate against the bad fishing practices. An agreement was concluded between the fishermen, defining the legal techniques of fishing, limited to certain authorized zones, with the purpose of putting an end to dynamite and cyanide fishing practices.
What is the volunteer job about?
Cats Of Gili foundation has a modest cat hospital at Lutwala dive. We often have many healthy homeless kittens in cages, and they are bored! Join us to give them exercise, cuddles, keeping them clean and playtime before they get rehomed.
If we are hosting a cat clinic whilst you are here, you can assist the vets at the cat clinic – catching strays and filing reports, helping out in surgery after care.
