À propos du programme

Travel to the pristine, uninhabited island of Mahe in the Seychelles and join an international group of volunteers on marine and terrestrial conservation initiatives. 

Work alongside partner organisations such as the Seychelles National Parks authority to contribute directly to the UN Sustainable Development Goals, such as #14 – Life Below Water, #15 – Life On Land, #4 – Quality Education and #17- Partnerships For Goals. 

Project work varies depending on seasons. You could expect to be working with endangered green & hawksbill sea turtles; collect data on the understudied sicklefin lemon shark pups; conduct beach profiling surveys to monitor coastal erosion or partake in a yearly census of giant Aldabra tortoises. Rotating between various focuses provides the chance for you to make a valuable impact and to develop a vast range of new skills. 

This program includes a complimentary Wildlife conservation online courses which must be completed in order to obtain a certificate offered in partnership with the University of Richmond in the United States.

Activités de loisirs

You will be based in and around the Cap Ternay national park in the north west of Mahe. Travelling around the local area is fairly easy, although access to and from the base can be infrequent so travel may be limited to weekend breaks. For further exploration you may choose to hire a car or make use of the inter-island ferry services.


In your down time you will be free to travel in the local area and can expect two free days per week. In this time you could explore the islands of Praslin or La Digue, visit the capital of Mahé, Victoria, visit local beaches, snorkel or just relax on base. Before and after your program you could spend a little more time in the Seychelles on the inner islands of Praslin and La Digue, or join a charter to sail even further afield. Please allow several days if you hope to travel between islands, there are over 100 in the archipelago but getting around takes time – the possibilities are endless!

Very helpful staff, went the extra mile to help fix a medication issue. Should be much better once accommodations are updated (I was part of the last group before renovations), as they were very rundown. There was a big rat problem, but recently funding for rat removal has been approved for the ...
I took part in the 4-week Conservation Internship on Curieuse Island, Seychelles and had an amazing time. The staff are very friendly and I met likeminded people from all over the world. We were focused on collecting data on turtle hatching success via daily hikes to different beaches, giant Aldabra ...

I spent 2 weeks on Curieuse, Seychelles with GVI in August 2022, and it was the experience of a lifetime! I was looking for something worthwhile to do during my long summer holiday as a teacher, and my GVI program was perfect. It was very well organised (e.g. organising travel from the airport to ...

It’s hard to begin with talking about what I enjoyed while on my program. For starters, I’ve done volunteer work before and I loved how I finally really had the feeling that I was making an impact and honestly doing something good instead of just being able to put something nice on my CV. Aside ...
My name is Gemma, I’m from a small town called Skipton in the UK. I studied at college Art and Design and I work now as a Marketing Manager for a stationery company.

2018 at Island Conservation Expedition

Although the base camp is very basic you do quickly adjust to that, helped by great staff and a brilliant group of international co-volunteers who gelled into an amazing team. The routine and simple life, free from technology (unless you want to invest in a local SIM) leads to great conversations, ...
