contribute to conserving and building a new coral reef in North Bali. Transplanting broken coral and growing new baby coral is the practical experience you'll receive. This volunteer program is especially suitable for:
Age 18+
Singles
Couples
Groups
50+

On our marine conservation Scuba diving, Naturalist, Conservationist volunteer program you will be focusing mainly on water-based activities such as coral farming, reef clean up, Nudibranch survey, turtle monitoring, and shipwreck monitoring

When the coral farm has new coral fragments (nubbins) growing, regular cleaning is required to keep the algae away. Once they are healthy, the new frames to protect them [called the nursery] can be built. You will be contributing to taking broken coral fragments and giving them a second chance to survive at our nursery. Some frames will remain on our nursery permanently as fish are using them as homes for their juveniles. 

Part taking in 'Reef cleans up' is also a vital element to this placement. Keeping the ocean clean and free of old fishing nets will help to restore the natural reefs. 

Turtle monitoring is also included in the placement. This consists of monitoring baby eggs on the beach and releasing them back to the sea. 

*Activities offered* includes: helping with constructing and transplanting artificial reef structures, marine conservation education in our own classroom and other partner schools, scuba diving activities, turtle conservation projects, plastic recycling projects and beach/reef cleans. 

40% Theory-based learning in group tasks will take part in our classroom and 60% practical experience will take place on the beach, outdoor community engagement and diving/snorkeling.
