Summer Experiences: GVI – Marine Conservation Expedition in the Seychelles
Marine Conservation Expedition in the Seychelles
Travel to the crystal clear waters of the Indian Ocean as a member of an expedition and work on critical marine conservation projects amongst the beautiful islands of Seychelles.
You will contribute towards various conservation-related surveys aimed at providing data to the Seychelles Parks and Gardens Authority (formerly Seychelles National Marine Park Authority – SNPA) and local government on coral reef, fish and invertebrate research and assist with the development of environmental education awareness. You might also undertake marine plastic pollution clean-ups both on the land around the base, our neighbouring beaches and across our adopted dive sites.
You’ll spend a large part of your time on this expedition scuba diving and as such you need to be qualified to at least PADI Open Water, or equivalent before joining the program. For non-divers wishing to attend, we can recommend local dive centres that will help you qualify before your intended start date. Receive the PADI Reef Ecosystem Diver (RESD) Specialty segment of the PADI Divemaster course. This unique offering by GVI & PADI teaches you about best practices when conducting underwater coral reef surveys. This is offered to participants staying for longer than 2 weeks on the program.
All GVI Programs have rolling start dates (every two weeks) throughout the summer. Each individual opportunity lists their start dates on the Dates & Prices page.
The registration is flexible depending on when you want to travel, but as places are limited it is recommended to confirm your place as soon as possible.
