About Love The Oceans
Love the Oceans is a micro, grassroots, non-profit marine conservation organisation working in Guinjata Bay, Mozambique.
We offer a cutting edge, ethically sound, volunteer program that gives individuals the chance to work alongside our marine biologists and the local community, helping with conservation, through research, education and diving over a 2 – 6 week period.
I think it is safe to say it has been two of the best decisions of my life.
If you are a marine biologist or anything similar, volunteering with LTO will give you practical, hands-on experience which most employers in marine conservation require.
Guinjata Bay, home to a huge host of marine life, has never been studied in depth for any prolonged amount of time. Love The Oceans hopes to protect and study the diverse marine life found here, including many species of sharks, rays and the famous humpback whales.
We use research, education and diving to drive action towards a more sustainable future. Our ultimate goal is to establish a Marine Protected Area for the Inhambane Province in Mozambique, achieving higher biodiversity whilst protecting endangered species.
We take volunteers from all over the world and you form our research and education teams. Volunteers are essential to our organisation and we couldn’t run without them.
You also gain access to all of our data, which you can use at university in your dissertation.
You’ll help in all aspects of our conservation efforts, giving you a real inside scoop on how a micro non-profit runs in a third world rural community.
Its not hard to see the huge importance of LTO in Guinjata Bay, and the significance each volunteer has. Whether you’re teaching in the schools, collecting data or helping the community, you really feel like you’re making a difference, and the rewards felt are humbling.
All our staff are unpaid so we can offer you the lowest price possible and we pride ourselves on being 100% transparent with volunteering fees – just ask for a break down and we’re happy to provide you with one.
