About

Volunteer on the island of Mauritius and assist with the conservation of fragile coral reefs and constituent species. Work alongside an NGO with the objective to ensure the reef habitats are preserved and protected from pollution and other stressors, and where necessary help to restore damaged reefs back to full health.

Volunteers will have the opportunity to:
- protect, enrich and monitor coastal habitats (reefs, beaches, lagoons)
- help with community outreach through events, etc

Volunteers will subsequently gain experience in:
- the management of fragile coastal ecosystems
- being able to identify marine species
- understanding indigenous issues surrounding the reefs
- implementing contemporary research findings in the field
