Join Pod Volunteer and learn to dive whilst helping to collect data, monitor species such as Whale sharks and supporting vital conservation work on the tropical Caribbean.
The project is focused on conserving the environment and contributing to ongoing marine research in Belize. All levels of diver are welcome as everyone contributes to the project.
Volunteers are involved in marine conservation work whilst learning to dive, increasing diving skills or simply exploring the reef with the research team!
With a small friendly team and the opportunity to live on your own tropical island, it really is a great way to experience and contribute towards the conservation of marine life in the Caribbean.
Each day will differ and you could be working in the following areas:
* Invasive Lionfish – spearing Lionfish to remove this destructive invasive species that is destroying native coral reef ecosystems
* Marine Conservation Education – learn about coral reefs and marine animals and discover how we can protect our oceans and reefs
* Biodiversity Identification Dives – ID dives (fish, sea turtles, sharks, invertebrates, coral) to increase knowledge and understanding of reef ecosystems
* Beach Clean-ups – weekly beach and island rubbish / plastic removal
