🇲🇿 Scuba Diving & Marine Conservation Volunteering 🇲🇿

SAVE 15% on travel between 1st October – 10th December 2023

Location: Tofo, Mozambique

Southern Mozambique is one of the world’s top 10 scuba diving locations. It is home to large populations of whale sharks, manta rays, dolphins and reef sharks. Live on the beach and dive in the warm waters of the Indian Ocean, home to some of the world’s most diverse marine wildlife. Collect observational data on whale sharks, manta rays, dolphins and sea turtles and help with conservation in protected wetlands.

The marine volunteer programme was set up to give citizen scientists the opportunity to participate in vital marine monitoring and research, at the same time gaining a wide variety of practical marine research skills. Volunteers collect data for specific research projects, and databases are used in policy-making to protect and preserve Mozambique’s marine wildlife.

You will usually undertake four research dives or ocean snorkel safaris per week during your programme. If you are doing your dive training, you will fit other activities in your first week around this training.

– Megafauna research
Focus species: manta ray, whale shark (year-round)
The Mozambican manta ray database is the second largest in the world, with 800 individuals identified in the area. Tofo is also a global hotspot for the whale shark – the world’s largest fish, and to date more than 600 individuals have been identified in the area. All marine turtle species in Mozambique are endangered, and their nesting grounds have declined rapidly due to poaching.

  • Collect field data, including ID photos, on manta rays and whale sharks
  • Check acoustic listening stations and set up cameras
  • Take identification photos and monitor behaviour
  • Tag animals and collect tissue samples
  • Visit the local protected estuary and snorkel amongst the fishes and seahorses

In addition to collecting data on the above marine megafauna, you will also gather information on other threatened species in the area including dolphins, bowmouth guitar sharks, stingrays and seahorses.
