Type of volunteering - marine conservation projects
Become part of the research teams we work with around the world which are contributing to global conservation and monitoring specific species such as whale sharks, turtles and manta rays. Most of the projects involve scuba diving to carry out marine surveys and data collection. If you haven’t dived before you can learn to dive on the projects (PADI / SSI or equivalent) or if you are already a diver it’s a great chance to develop your dive skills!
Duration: 1 – 12 weeks
Cost from: £845 / $1080
20% of the world’s coral reefs have been effectively destroyed and show no immediate prospects of recovery (WWF)
“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
“Coral reefs are home to 25% of all marine fish and the scientific community recognizes the need to work with non-scientists in order to help collect important data on these reefs. Volunteers do just that, help us collect the valuable data needed to help us monitor the health of the reef itself and its inhabitants.” Reef Conservation project, Belize
