Can you go if you're 17 years old?

Hi Suzanne,
Most of our projects require volunteers to be 18 or over, with a couple having an age requirement of 20 or 21. Our Great Barrier Reef Marine Conservation project can be completed by under 18s if they have a legal guardian present who is over 18 as their responsible person. We can also take 17 year as independent travellers at our Great Barrier Reef Turtle Rehabilitation project. They just need to have a guardian sign a consent form. Our Island Reef Research and Conservation project will take 16+ year olds with a waiver and consent form being required.
