Picture yourself in Thailand, drifting gently underwater in the Andaman Sea and breathing easily through your scuba equipment. Imagine doing this while contributing to important marine conservation work in Thailand. This is a great way to add experience to your CV, and it shows your interest in global environmental affairs.
On our Diving and Marine Conservation Project, you’ll work alongside experienced and passionate conservationists. You’ll spend your first week with us getting your PADI diving certificate, or doing more advanced courses if you’re already certified. Once you’re qualified, you can help with tasks like underwater surveys and coral propagation initiatives. You’ll also do work on land, such as mangrove reforestation.
You’ll live and work in Ao Nang, and stay with other volunteers in comfortable bungalows at our base camp. Free time is yours to explore the stunning beaches of Ao Nang, taste delicious Thai cuisine, or take trips to nearby islands.
Here are some of the tasks you can expect to do:
- Learn to dive and take part in survey dives with professional divers
- Beach clean-ups along Ao Nang’s coastline
- Plant and transplant mangroves as part of reforestation efforts
- Raise awareness in the local community
Your work will be divided into the following; learning to dive and taking part in survey dives with professional divers, beach clean-ups along Ao Nang’s coastline, planting and transplanting mangroves as part of reforestation efforts and raising awareness in the local community.
