The working day usually starts with a meeting at 7:00 am, during which the tasks and schedule for the day are discussed. A typical day might include monitoring activities, launching the boat, raking, removing invasive plants, data entry, tourists (especially in the NW monsoon), or maintenance activities. The working day ends at 5:00 pm, and includes a two hour lunch break from 12:00 to 2:00 pm. Usually there are snack/tea breaks in the morning and afternoon as well, but the exact schedule depends on tasks that need to be done.
Volunteers assist with all aspects of the island’s work including scientific monitoring and research, maintenance of the paths, buildings and other infrastructure, launching and landing boats, patrolling the island and leading tours for visiting tourists.
