Travel to the beautiful Caribbean side of Mexico and volunteer with marine conservation while earning your PADI diving certificate!
Explore the Mesoamerican coral reef and all of its colorful wildlife, while learning about the conservation efforts being made in this part of the world. Over the course of this exciting project, you will assist with the collection of data in the reef, alongside the project’s local partners. This data helps to develop an overview of the ecological health of the reef and develop education and awareness programs in the community.
A few highlights include:
This program works with various organizations including Amigos de Sian Ka’an, a Mexican NGO that is well known for their conservation work. Because of these partnerships, you can be sure that all of your efforts are making a serious impact to ocean conservation.
What to Expect:
This extremely rewarding program can also include long days, which you should be prepared for.
While on the program, you can expect 1-2 dives or snorkels each day, 5 days per week. This will depend on weather conditions. While on a dive or snorkel, you will help with underwater surveys after you complete your training for the program.
Other than diving, you should also expect to be part of additional projects which can include training sessions, environmental education, marine debris surveys, and more depending on the needs of the project and the local community. You'll also be expected to participate with duties while on the base.
Living conditions will be basic, but the accommodation is right on the beach of a protected reserve. When you are not working, you'll have the chance to research and explore the local reef and marine species, hang out with the other volunteers, and relax on the beach!
