We offer a cutting edge ethical volunteer programme that gives highly motivated individuals the chance to work alongside our marine biologists and support the local community.
We are heavily engaged with our community and village Elders, and committed to improving learning facilities, providing marine conservation and water safety education at two local schools.
LTO actively supports learning through cultural and international awareness, and an appreciation of inter-dependence with a spirit of respect for the values of diversity and social responsibility.
- Coral reef research
- Fisheries research
- Megafauna surveys
- Teaching and Painting at the local schools
- Beach Cleans
The data is then processed by Love The Oceans’ team themselves, used by students in their dissertations, and shared with other research institutes with similar goals.
Volunteers have Saturday mornings and Sundays to participate in a variety of optional extra activities such as surf lessons, learning to free dive, joining a sailing trip, advancing your diving qualifications (Advanced/Rescue) or just relaxing on the beach.
- Participants must hold a PADI Open Water certificate by the start date of the programme
(if you don’t have this you can come a week early and complete it on site)
- Participants must have studied or be studying a related subject at University level or equivalent
The price includes everything you will need from when you step off the plane, you just need to bring any cash you want for souvenirs, extra snacks etc.
Whenever you volunteer abroad, you should always check out the organisation you’re going with and their ethical policies. Here at Love The Oceans we’re committed to ensuring your volunteer time is used both ethically and efficiently.
