Background

With almost 1000 kms of Mediterranean coastline, Spain has a rich marine biodiversity and amazing coastal lifestyle to look after. However, with increased tourism, but lesser awareness on ethical traveling, preservation of natural habitats becomes utmost important. The Marine Conservation Program in Spain is an effort towards keeping the coastal areas clean and safe for aquatic lives to survive.

The project

Located in a traditional fishing town called Denia, 100 kms to south of Valencia and home of the Marine Reserve in the Cape of San Antonio, this marine conservation program is a sincere initiative to maintain and nullify the harsh effect of increased tourism on the environment. Volunteers participating in these projects will learn new skills and contribute to minimize the adverse environmental impact of their travel and get involved in important conservation and research programs.

Volunteer work

Some of the main volunteer tasks under this program includes;

  • Monitoring the whales, dolphins and seabirds.
  • Coastal flora and fauna surveys and data collection.
  • Working at the wetland to improve the ecosystems.
  • Turtle monitoring.
  • Coast and underwater cleaning (scuba).
  • Reforestation and forest fire prevention.
  • Learn to accurately identify the targeted species and helping with the logistical operations.

Diving

One does not need to be a licensed diver, but should know how to swim. Depending on the weather conditions, work during the week will combine both water and coastal activities. All necessary equipment will be provided to the volunteers on the days when underwater tasks are to be done. For those, who are looking for proper diving classes, it can be arranged as well on an additional cost. 

Continue the conservation work from where our previous volunteers left it, and contribute your time and efforts to keep the coastal areas clean, as well as make sure that the aquatic wildlife gets a livable habitat. 

Typical day

A typical volunteer life under this project is as described below:

  • Volunteers will work from Monday to Friday in the morning (approximately between 8am -1pm), and depending on the weather conditions work during the week will combine both water and coastal activities.
  • For the rest of the day, volunteers will have time to relax and go to the beach, join our cultural activities, explore the city, practice sports and go for tapas.
  • Occasionally, volunteers are expected to work half days on Saturdays or Sundays, but normally weekends are free to explore the beautiful surrounding area or to travel to other cities. Our local staff will give advice and help organize your trips!

Free-time activities

Spain is one country where you don't have to search for things to do; they come to you automatically. Depending on your project placement, you will get evenings and the weekends free,  to travel and explore the places.

In the evenings, volunteers usually get together and go out for social gatherings. Weekends are free for the volunteers and you can go for short weekend trips. In Spain, you’ll see a magnitude of interesting sights. Visit the artistic Barcelona, the grandiose Royal Palace in Madrid, the imposing Catedral de la Almudena, the golden triangle of museums, Mezquita of Cordoba Ancient streets and many Renaissance, Baroque, Gothic or Romanesque monuments. Trust us, you will not get enough of the Spanish cities!
