Marine Conservation Courses

Marine Conservation Courses

We conduct marine conservation courses for you to be involved in marine science. Learn coral ecology, surveying methodologies, coral restoration techniques, data gathering, research and more.

You do not need to have a research background to be able to start your journey.

All you need is a keen interest in the marine ecosystem and a thirst to know more about how it works and how we can monitor changes and implement strategies to protect the ocean.

Marine Conservation Internships

We have short and long term placements to be a Marine Conservation Intern.

Ranging from 1 week to 3 months, you will join our team and be involved in all our ongoing projects.

Water quality testing, microplastic surveys, beach and ocean debris data collection, coral health monitoring and restoration, invasive species population control, artificial reef maintenance. All these projects and more, will give you a well rounded experience of Marine Conservation.

Marine Conservation Projects

Marine Conservation Projects

Working with a variety of organisations, we provide extensive research data to scientists to access around the world.

Using our experience we have selected our research projects that focus on different elements of the ocean. Using all the data from these projects gives us a great understanding of the climate change and human impacts that cause serious harm to the ecosystem.

Scientist and governments can use this data to provide solutions or changes in regulations to protect our coral reefs.
