Marine Conservation volunteers provide support to underwater clean-up efforts, helping to reduce ocean pollution and conserve marine life. As an ocean conservation volunteer, you’ll be using and improving your scuba diving skills while being actively involved in restoring the natural state of the marine ecosystem of the Mediterranean. 


When having no diving experience, volunteers will have to gain some before engaging in any underwater conservation activities. The Program Fee covers the cost of the required online and in-person training, full scuba equipment, and volunteer supervision from an experienced dive instructor. All volunteers complete internationally recognized PADI diving certifications. Depending on your current diving experience and the length of your stay you’ll complete a certification ranging from Open Water Diver to Advanced Open Water Diver. The project works with a local diving school, therefore you are always supervised by an experienced dive instructor.

By joining this project you’ll become part of a worldwide movement of passionate people dealing with the global challenge of litter and the impact human development is having on the marine environment. All efforts on the project work towards the vision of healthier oceans, thriving ecosystems and a clean coastline. As part of this, your tasks as a volunteer can include collecting trash from the sea, logging information on items collected, learning more about the marine ecosystem and how to protect it, and observing and identifying fish. Please, note in your application when you apply for the program if you have any existing dive certifications.

Dagelijkse activiteiten

After the initial orientation day, you will have a morning, afternoon or evening shift at your placement and will work for approximately 3 to 5 hours per day. Please note that start times and daily workload depends on the project that you are participating on. 

A typical schedule is as follows:
7 – 10 am | Breakfast at the volunteer accommodation 
10 am | Travel to the diving center to join local placement staff and get training and dive.
13.30 pm | Lunch is served at the accommodation. In the morning you can grab a “packed lunch” to have in the city or at your placement
2 – 7 pm | Explore the city, relax, attend Spanish language lessons or enroll other activities
8 – 10 pm | Dinner at the accommodation. After dinner you will have the remainder of the evening free to relax and use as you wish. 

Note: Monday’s welcome session and city tour online happen in the first week. The following weeks it’s a regular day of volunteering.  

Vrijetijdsactiviteiten

Spain is a country with a long historical and cultural heritage being reflected on the food, architecture, people and language. Its second biggest city, Barcelona, is an enchanting seaside city with boundless culture, fabled architecture, sun-drenched beaches and picturesque neighbourhoods. Combine relaxing, exploring, meeting people and enjoying the weather. Every month there's a different celebration or main event in the city. If you happen to be around, check the festivities calendar for that month! Most like those will be vibrant happenings.

Afhaal aan de luchthaven op Barcelona-El Prat Airport
Our staff will pick you up at the airport and guide you through the metro to the accommodation. It takes about 25 minutes from the airport to the accommodation.
Accomodatie
You will stay accommodated in a social hostel with a meaningful social and environmental mission.  The Hostel has the capacity to accommodate up to 200 conscious travelers who want to visit Barcelona in a responsible way.  
There are various common areas such as dining room, living room, room balconies, outside areas surrounded by nature and a pool to refresh in the summer.  
The hostel is in a neighborhood where you can find everything you need: local coffee shops, supermarkets, ATMs, hospital, police and most utilities you will need just around the corner. The Hostel is 5 minutes walking from the metro stop and has a few buses running by that can bring you to the city center. The airport is just 15 minutes away by public transportation. 
But what is really unique about it is its social and sustainable concept. The hostel is actually a social business for a non-profit ran in the same building. The non-profit develops a wide range of programs, campaigns and activities for children and youth, their families and third sector organizations. The hostel also has a sustainability and accessibility commitment reflected on measures such as renewable energy production, selective waste collection, etc.

Wat is er NIET inbegrepen?
Visum, vluchten, reisverzekering en vaccinaties zijn NIET inbegrepen in de programmakosten.
Vlucht tickets
De dichtste luchthaven is Barcelona-El Prat Airport (BCN) in Barcelona. We assisteren u met het vinden van goedkope vluchten naar Spanje.
Reisverzekering
Naar het buitenland reizen is een avontuur en het is best om goed voorbereid te zijn. Plots ziek worden of gewond raken, annulaties of diefstal - een reisverzekering voor Spanje biedt zekerheid en is een meerwaarde.
Vaccinaties
Als je de intentie hebt om als vrijwilliger aan de slag te gaan in Spanje dien je eerst medisch advies in te winnen alvorens je eropuit trekt. Kijk de benodigde vaccinaties na voor Spanje.
