If marine biology is one of your great passions in life, you might want to consider becoming a marine conservation volunteer in the Maldives. Given that this country is made up of 90% water and about 200 different islands, there are plenty of opportunities for volunteering right by and in the ocean.
From whale shark research to marine conservation efforts that are focused on the local turtle population, your helping hands will certainly be appreciated. No matter what kind of project you choose to sign up for as a marine conservation volunteer, you certainly will not get bored anytime soon. After all, some of your tasks might include:
- educating the local public about what they can do to protect the ocean
- rehabilitating and releasing turtles that have been held in captivity as pets
- organizing community beach clean ups
Of course, you will be working alongside a group of trained professionals who will tell you exactly what you need to do. If special training is required for you to be able to do your job at a marine conservation volunteer in the Maldives, the volunteer project that you have chosen will be sure to provide you with this training.
