Our Impact

Our marine conservation projects focus on restoring damaged marine ecosystems and protecting endangered marine species, as well as undertaking critical research to help shed light on those species and systems we don’t yet fully understand. We also work to provide environmental education to local communities, helping them to implement long-term, impactful approaches to conserving their natural heritage. All data gathered by our volunteers is used by our partners and local governments to help improve marine conservation policies and contribute to the long term survival of the reefs for future generations.

No matter whether you are on a gap year from school, a student, on a career break or on an extended holiday, there is important work for you to be involved in, as you make an important contribution to critical marine conservation projects.
