What you can expect
On the Marine Conservation project you have the opportunity to join a variety of conservation efforts focused on the protection of the marine ecosystem in Madagascar. You will work in collaboration with and on behalf of a number of oceanographic organisations to gather vital raw data through a number of initiatives, including:
Reef Surveying – monitoring the biodiversity, health, and growth of the reef system surrounding Nosy Komba through fish, invertebrate and coral surveys using scuba equipment.
Turtle Monitoring – establishing an estimated inventory and census of Madagascan turtles. To determine the frequency and population strength of the varying species of turtle that visit the area.
Nudibranch Research – through surveys using scuba equipment volunteers are able to provide data to determine the species density and biodiversity of nudibranchs in the area as well as associated substrates.
Beach Cleans – to preserve marine animals that get caught in and/or eat marine litter as well as removing synthetic, damaging material from the ecosystem.
Community – educate the local community about environmental issues, conservation, and protection of biodiversity and marine resources such as food.
Reef Regeneration – through reef regeneration by coral propagation and litter removal volunteers can aim to increase the coral reef size and heath in the area, thus providing more habitat space for reef fish.
