Koh Tao Marine Conservation & Dive Training!

Pays d’action: Thaïlande, Asie
Type d’activité: Ecovolontariat
Support us on the breath taking island of Koh Tao in Marine Conservation! Learn to dive, get in depth knowledge of important topics and methods of marine conservation and apply your knowledge under water. You will conduct surveys, take part in beach clean ups, maintain coral nurseries and all of this with a dedicated team of professionals who will make you part of their marine conservation family!



Description du projet et du rôle des volontaires

25% of marine dwellers live in coral reefs which is impressive as coral reefs don’t account for more than 1% of the surface of the ocean. Your placement in Koh Tao is a dream destination for tourists and worldwide hot spot for divers. This is not surprising – the scenery is perfect for every postcard: crystal clear water, an incredible biodiversity, white sand beaches and almost always sunshine throughout the year. Nature protection efforts though are only in its beginnings. Together with an engaged team of professionals who put their heart and soul into changing this, we are active in more than 25 dive spots around the island – and here is where you get active.

We collect valid data, research the global and local dangers and their effects and develop solutions for the future. As a volunteer you will get a professional dive training, important theoretical knowledge and you will apply this under water in a variety of projects.

Dive Training: RAID Open Water, Advanced Open Water and Ecological Diver

Theory: Marine Conservation, Marine Ecology, Methodology for professional research

Surveys/Practicals: Two dives each day related to morning classroom session e.g. further developing knowledge and understanding from the new morning topic, underwater skill development, survey practice, research dives, nursery maintenance, data collection, Beach Clean ups, etc.

The outcome will help to improve the health of the ocean in Koh Tao as we will get knowledge about its current status and over time and plan actions. With your help we can find out more about corals, reef organisms and whole ecosystems.
The program will run on 5 days a week.

We begin the day with a breakfast, get our theoretical knowledge in presentations in the classroom and then do our diving in the afternoon. After this we will put the collected data into the system and have a debrief of the day. After this enjoy your well deserved dinner – it will taste fabulous!

Saturdays and Sundays are free time. There are countless options you might want to try: snorkeling, hiking, local cooking classes, beachvolleyball, paddle boarding, kite surfing, BBQ at the beach, cinema, full moon party (monthly) or simply chill out with our team or enjoy some relaxation on the beach or around the island.
