Making a difference in conservation

  • 20% of the world’s coral reefs have been effectively destroyed and show no immediate prospects of recovery (WWF)

  • Around the world our volunteers helped conserve 115,919 acres of land last year!

  • “As well as being essential for data collection, volunteers are future conservationists who are being exposed to the wonders of the underwater world and raising awareness on marine conservation.” Marine Conservation project, South Africa

We are driven by the needs of the projects we support. We only offer sustainable volunteering projects that have lasting and positive impact on the local community.
