Dive straight into the world of marine conservation with our Internship program situated on the Caribbean coast of Mexico in the Yucatan Peninsula. Our base is located a few meters from the beach. The National Park Reefs of Puerto Morelos is one of the natural protected areas that are included in the recently formed Marine Biosphere Reserve of the Mexican Caribbean. One of the largest Marine Biosphere reserves in the World. The Biosphere Reserve has a diversity of specific marine and coastal ecosystems for that are unique for the mexican part of the Caribbean Sea, from the coral reef, to seagrass meadows, to mangrove forest and the outlets of the largest underground river in the world (cenotes).


You will live and work in this tropical paradise with our research team. Participants will undergo an extensive training programme, designed to test and improve your diving skills and take your knowledge of the marine eco-system to another level. The theory will be met with practical application, as you and your team work to compile crucial research on the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef, the second largest barrier reef in the world, its local fish species, as well as seasonal turtle nesting surveys.

This project works in conjunction with several highly regarded organisations such as the National Fisheries Ministry of Mexico, local Fishing cooperative, Healthy Reefs for healthy people, local and national universities among others. Through such partnerships, volunteers can be sure their efforts are making a serious and measurable impact under the water.

As with all our Internship programmes, there will be a strong focus on developing your professional skills and teaching you how to apply them with a holistic approach to marine conservation. Participants will also receive specific leadership responsibilities, a weekly evaluation from your mentor who will be monitoring your progress, as well as a professional reference on completion of the programme.
