This Shark Conservation project is the chance of a lifetime for volunteers to work on a pioneering research project alongside respected scientists and shark research experts.
Summary

Shark Conservation in Fiji

The primary aim of the Shark Conservation Project is to protect and conserve the eight species of sharks that inhabit the area, as well as the many other species present in the waters of Fiji. The research we carry out helps to ensure that scientists and marine protection lobbyists are provided with regular and consistent scientific data about the life history, reproductive information, movement and biology of the sharks found in Fijian waters. This information is vital for devising successful conservation and management strategies.

As part of your initial training, volunteers will also be trained as a PADI Open Water Diver - as a certified scuba diver you will then be able to fully participate in the underwater surveys and conservation dives. If you are already a certified diver, we can provide you with your PADI Advanced Open Water Diver training. All volunteers will also gain their Project Aware Shark Conservation Diver speciality.

Volunteers will observe and assist on a range of tasks, including:

- Shark and indicator fish surveys
- Setting underwater camera traps and retrieving data
- Shark and marine ecology lectures
- Mangrove reforestation work
- Community education and awareness projects
- Recycling and climate change projects

We also have Diving & Marine Conservation projects running in Belize, Cambodia and Thailand!
