Coral Conservation

Coral Reef Conservation Projects

Perfect for those looking to specialise in coral conservation, volunteering on a coral reef conservation project is a great way to understand and preserve local ecosystems and protected areas. Some projects house volunteers on their very own private island spending their days diving for both work and pleasure.

Participants assist in the restoration of coral reefs damaged by man or Mother Earth and give homes to many marine species and plant life that are in danger of extinction. Projects are likely to be based around key threats to coral reefs such as climate change, unlicensed fishing, industrial overspills and land-based pollution. Volunteers on coral reef conservation projects usually spend their days collecting and analysing data, creating actions plans for change and developing partnerships with local government bodies to ensure.

Coral conservation volunteers are often housed in basic hostel-like dormitories, however access to electricity and running water are both subject to your geographical placement. Volunteers are usually encouraged to explore the local area in their free time and to get to know the indigenous community. Participants come from all backgrounds and nationalities so if this is something that interests you, add a coral conservation project abroad to your gap year itinerary.
