From £900
Duration 14 - 84 Days
If you’re passionate about ecology, underwater photography, marine conservation, surveying and diving - or if you’ve always to learn - this is the opportunity for you!

Intern Abroad HQ offers flexible and affordable internships in South Africa! Learn about Indian Ocean Reef Conservation, gain marine ecology training and scuba experience in one of the world’s prime marine habitats, at Sodwana Bay Marine National Park. Situated just outside iSimangaliso Wetland Park, South Africa’s first UNESCO World Heritage Site, the location offers some of the best diving in the world.

During the first phase of this internship, participants undergo initial scuba dive training (if not yet qualified), or – if already qualified – take any further advanced or speciality courses. (This aspect of the program is included in the internship program fee – if you’ve always wanted to learn to dive or upgrade your existing dive qualifications, this is the opportunity to do so!)

Interns take part in a Marine Ecology Training Course and lecture series, presented by the resident Marine Coordinator. Training covers the methodologies that are required to collect data during underwater scuba surveys (i.e. data collection on the megafauna populations including turtles and manta rays), as well as training for fish, coral and invertebrate identification, data collection and survey techniques. All data collection is contributed toward global or regional scientific databases.
