For three days volunteers worked in the training center for sustainable agriculture projects by involving themselves in activities like planting fruit plants, collecting bio mass, protecting plants by fencing and nursery management work.  Volunteers also visited schools and gave sessions on sea turtle conservation to students. They also conducted a puppet show and organized a drawing competition and sand sculptures.  Local youth clubs participated actively and sponsored prizes for the winners.
