Indonesia is the 4th most populated country in the world, the number one shark fishing nation, and second largest contributor to ocean plastic pollution. Geographically, Indonesia should have some of the highest biodiversity of predatory species in the world, but the high demand for shark fins and manta ray gill rakers has caused severe overfishing across the country and nearly exhausted the population. This is the front lines of marine mega fauna conservation efforts.
At Indo Ocean Project we believe that before becoming good research divers, you first must become a good diver. A combination dive master/conservation project allows our interns to become dive professionals while taking an active roll in one of our many resident projects. We current have 3 projects locations across Indonesia accepting applications all year round.
