If you’re passionate about marine conservation, and you’re keen for a travel adventure, consider volunteering in Mozambique! We invite you to join us at one of our idyllic project locations – at a camp on the beach, or on an island just off the coast. Whichever you choose, you’ll be surrounded by white sandy beaches, crystal clear water, and the most incredible range of marine wildlife, including whales, dolphins, sea turtles, and rays.
As a volunteer in Mozambique, you’ll help preserve this stunning marine ecosystem by assisting with vital research and conservation programs. Our volunteer projects in Mozambique offer a wonderful ocean adventure with a purpose.

Volunteers play a crucial role in gathering and analysing data for long-term projects in Praia do Tofo and a large portion of your time will be spent on research scuba dives, where your priority is to gain quality data that contributes to successful conservation of the coral reefs and megafauna in the region including, whale sharks, manta rays, and other large oceanic creatures.
Attend talks on marine megafauna biology, anatomy, physiology, pathology, research, and conservation. The research team have a wealth of specialist marine knowledge and researchers give regular talks about specific wildlife such as sharks or manta rays. These will be relevant to anything you’ve seen or learnt about in the week and will be tailored to the particular interests of volunteers.
Community involvement and interaction is a big part of conservation, and we find regular opportunities to engage with local people. You might take part in a beach clean-up, visit a local school to educate children about the importance of ocean conservation, and how to avoid dangers in the water, or attend a community event such as World Oceans Day.
