Marine Internships Seychelles is now closed for 2016.
You will be working on coral reefs in and around the Baie Ternay national park area, treasured for its crystal clear turquoise waters and white sandy beaches. Your base is around a 30 minute walk from the nearest bus station (a 40 minute bus ride from the capital Victoria). Volunteers use public transport to get around on their days off, which is cheap and frequent and all parts of Mahe can be easily explored.
During your first 12 weeks whilst conducting marine research accommodation is in shared dorms. The facilities are basic and participants share base duties including cleaning and chores. On your 12 week work placement accommodation is of a higher standard, sharing with other participants or dive staff. Your placement will be discussed with you further when you are in the Seychelles, although this will be closer to a main tourist area with shops, restaurants and hotels.
You will be working with other international interns alongside field staff that assist the project. When on placement you will be working with local dive centre staff.
