I had a wonderful experience. Being in contact with the ocean and its life is magic. The peaceful coexistence of different cultures brought me immeasurable growth. Working in Naifaru as a volunteer, developing environmental activities with the community and volunteers was amazing. Adolfo Marques, Brazil
