You do not need any special skills for this Island Conversation Project. A basic knowledge of English and the ability to work and live with a team are nice to have. As well as a average fitness level so you can keep up with the island life!

For the Marine Conservation Expedition on Mahé, all volunteers require a current PADI Open Water. No additional skills are required, but it certainly helps if you’re already familiar with diving safety protocol and marine / boating experience. You will study either fish, coral or invertebrates and be taught survey methodology. Writing on a slate underwater would be a good activity to practice before you go!
