ANIMAL WELFARE

We love all animals on and around the Gili Islands. We help to protect the turtle population and continue to support projects such as Cats of Gili and STUD Horse Stables.

PROJECTS WE SUPPORT

There are many projects across the Gili Islands that we are pleased to be able to support. We do not have the resources to manage everything ourselves so we are happy to support individuals who do their bit to make the islands better for all.

CATS OF GILI

Caring for the welfare of cats on the islands through free volunteer vet clinics and a TNR programme to help manage the population of stray cats. Also providing food for stray cats.

STUD HORSE RIDING

Stud is a local riding stable which also provides a permanent home for rescued and retired horses. Happy, healthy horses is their top priority with all proceeds going directly towards their care. 

SUPARMAN'S TREEVOLUTION

We are proud partners of Pak Suparman and his Treevolution campaign. The main mission: Re-green Gili. Island trees are slowly disappearing and being replaced with high-rise concrete filled hotels.

WATCH

When visitors come to the island they see the challenges we face on Gili Trawangan in trying to protect the ecology of our landscape. We won’t lie, it is really hard work and we have a long way to go, but by getting involved and helping to spread the word, we can make a difference together.
