VOLUNTEER SEYCHELLES

Make the crystal clear waters of the Indian Ocean your home for the next 4 weeks on this marine conservation experience to the Seychelles. You’ll find yourself contributing to various projects and initiatives during your time away, both on land and on sea. Get stuck in to community development and carry out daily dives, you’ll quickly fall in love with this tropical destination.

HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Coral reef monitoring and recovery research

  • Invertebrate fish surveys

  • Sea turtle nesting surveys

  • Plankton sampling research

  • Helping to train local partners

  • Development of an environmental education and awareness program.

It’s safe to say you won’t be short of things to do, so be prepared for long and tiring days with 1-2 dives/snorkels a day alongside all your extra efforts, you’ll be ready to kick your feet up come the evening. This will be the perfect opportunity to catch up with your fellow volunteers in your dorms along the beach and talk about you sightings from the day!

**Please be aware, to take part in the 4 week programme you are required to obtain at least a PADI open water qualification or equivalent. For non-divers, we can put you in contact with local dive centres so you will be qualified prior to the start of your experience.
