We offer a cutting edge volunteer program that gives individuals the chance to work alongside our marine biologists helping with conservation and research, in the beautiful surroundings of Guinjata Bay, Mozambique. Volunteers gain experience through our research, teaching and fish IDing programs over the space of 4 or 5 weeks, including collecting data on whale sharks and humpback whales.
Volunteers are crucial to Love The Oceans’ cause and by participating in the program volunteers help to collect the first ever fisheries data, coral reef health data and humpback whale pod dynamics and behavioral data in Guinjata Bay as well as building bridges with the local communities by teaching 10-11 year olds in the local schools about the importance of the marine environment.
