Volunteering in Marine Conservation

Joining a marine conservation project with Frontier offers the opportunity to learn to dive as well as contribute to the valuable marine preservation of some of the most beautiful and threatened coral reefs in the world. Global warming is having a significant effect on marine ecosystems all over the world and a project like this is your chance to make a difference.

What will a marine conservation project involve?

The complex nature of marine ecosystems means that taking part in a marine conservation project can take many different forms and focus on a vast selection of issues. You may find yourself working closely with various flora and fauna such as sea grasses, fish, mammals, invertebrates, coral reefs and mangroves. Elsewhere you could be involved with projects relating to local communities and their dependence upon marine habitats. This may include the creation of sustainable fisheries, educational programmes, protected areas and marine reserves.

The significant biodiversity found around coral reef ecosystems means that their preservation is of vital importance, not least to the local peoples who have relied on them for thousands of year.

The continued threat to these invaluable areas means that working to protect them is an on-going effort. Getting involved in a Frontier project is a great way to contribute to this process and help to protect one of the most biodiverse habitats on the planet.

Where could a marine conservation project take you?

The recent decline and damage to coral reefs all over the world means that they have become the focus of marine conservation projects in various locations. Involving local communities in these projects is a vital part of the process and has been key to successful initiatives in the past where fishery quotas and marine reserves have been implemented.

Iconic species such as whale sharks and humpback whales are regular visitors to the waters and coral reefs of the Indian Ocean to the east of Africa. Joining a Frontier project could see you witnessing these majestic giants in their natural habitats in the waters of Madagascar or Tanzania.

The idyllic islands of Fiji in the South Pacific Ocean make a stunning location to get involved in a marine conservation project. Frontier offers you the chance to visit an island seldom visited by tourists to take part in the on-going work we are doing here.

Marine conservation with Frontier

Frontier’s first marine conservation project was founded on Tanzania’s Mafia Island in 1989, going on to play an important part in the establishment of the Mafia Island Marine Park in 1995. Frontier has been specialising in carrying out and supplying unique marine focused projects with the valuable input of volunteers for over 21 years.

While on a Frontier marine conservation and diving project you could have the opportunity to train to PADI Advanced Open Water or even beyond, as well as complete one of a number of accredited qualifications that will contribute significantly to your CV.

If you’d like to find out more about Frontier’s marine conservation projects, feel free to get in touch and we’ll gladly answer any questions you might have. Alternatively, if you are sure you would like to get involved, you can apply now.
