This Short-term Special is the ideal option for those with an interest in Marine Conservation who would like to work towards making a positive impact in a local community.

During your stay, you will complete your PADI open water certification and use your newly-acquired diving skills to assist with vital conservation work and survey dives. Your efforts will work towards the preservation of animal species and their habitat by contributing to research and collecting data. Volunteers will also take part in an initiative known as Dive Against Debris, where you will help to remove marine debris from the ocean that can destroy habitats and smother marine life.

Volunteers will also spend time assisting with valuable environmental education efforts with children at the local school. Here you will run awareness workshops and organise beach clean-ups. You may also find yourself helping to teach English classes and playing educational games with the students, as well as taking part in basic renovation work.

You will stay in shared volunteer accommodation on our Conservation base. All volunteers eat together in the large multi-functional communal area, or on the deck overlooking the water.

Throughout your stay, you will also enjoy a number of different social and cultural activities organised by Projects Abroad. These include meals out at a local restaurant, movie nights and culture workshops.

Volunteers will also take an exciting weekend trip to Chi Phat, a stunning commune where you can explore the natural wonders and go kayaking along the river, and cycle or trek up to the waterfalls.

This placement is fully researched, safety audited and risk assessed in accordance with the British Standard BS8848 for the Adventure Travel Sector.

Every year, thousands of Short-term Special volunteers actively make a difference around the world. During their time abroad, they contribute towards achieving long-term goals and make a long-lasting positive impact on the communities where they work.
