If scuba diving every day and rehabilitating marine life sounds like your idea of heaven, why not find out more about marine conservation projects abroad? There are a number of issues that are affecting the preservation of delicate ecosystems and the survival of our marine species. Marine conservation volunteers are needed to help clean up the mess that has been caused by pollution, overfishing, habitat destruction and whaling. Volunteers will work to protect species and habitats and restore their natural living environments.
Some marine conservation volunteers will have the opportunity to earn their PADI diving qualifications and even participate in work placements. On occasion volunteers are encouraged to take part in TEFL courses so that they feel prepared to teach community workshops.
Marine conservation programmes can take volunteers all over the world including places such as Thailand, Mozambique, Bahamas or even the Galapagos Islands! Marine conservation volunteers of all ages and backgrounds are encouraged to apply. So if you believe that beaches should be pollution-free and that all marine life are entitled to clean homes, then why not add a marine conservation project to your gap year?
