Prerequisites – 5 Week Program

PREREQUISITES:

  • Applicants must be studying or have studied a relevant degree area. Please enquire at info@lovetheoceans.org if you’re unsure if your degree is relevant to marine conservation. Not qualified? Don’t worry, you can apply for our Conservation Adventure Program and gain experience on this. After completeing our Conservation Adventure Program you’ll be eligible to apply for our 2 and 5 week programs.
  • Applicants must be +18 on the time of arrival. We’re busy developing an under 18s program at the moment. Click here for more information about that. 
  • Applicants must be at least PADI Open Water qualified

If you are not Open Water qualified, it is possible to come and do your Open Water the week before your volunteer program starts at an extra cost. Please email for details.

We request that all our volunteers bring out at least 5kg of donations – this can include stationary for the local school (books, pens, paper, rulers etc), useful items for the local fishermen (old clothes, sunglasses), old unlocked phones and old cameras (with chargers) or any useful scientific equipment (measuring tapes, clipboards etc).
