As an ocean conservation volunteer, you’ll be using and improving your scuba diving skills while being actively involved in restoring the natural ecosystem. This volunteer program is especially suitable for:

Grupos

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 are able to take internationally recognized diving certifications. 
It is recommended to stay at least 2 weeks to guarantee the Open Water certification as it depends on weather conditions and 1 week might not be enough. 
Depending on your current diving experience and the length of your stay you’ll complete a certification ranging from Open Water Diver to Rescue Diver with dozens of dives and specialties. 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.

Typical day

After the initial orientation day, you will have a morning or afternoon 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 – 8 am | Breakfast at the volunteer accommodation 
8 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 happen in the first week. The following weeks it’s a regular day of volunteering.  

Free-time activities

There are various common areas such as dining room, living room, room balconies and outside areas.  

The hostel is in a neighborhood where you can find everything you need: a mall, local coffee shops, supermarkets, ATMs, hospital, police and most utilities you will need just around the corner.
