Marine conservation vacations

Marine conservation vacations are aimed at anyone with a passion for the ocean; enthusiasm is valued over experience and you don’t need a scientific background. Placements take different forms – data collection and monitoring are generally the aim, but this can take place during beach patrols, from the deck of a boat, or underwater. Many are based in fairly remote regions; while your lodging may be basic, your surroundings and experience will be 5*.
