What's the project about?

Southern Mozambique is one of the top 10 scuba diving locations in the world, home to large populations of whale sharks, manta rays and humpback whales. The project is focused on the long term conservation of these vulnerable ocean giants, and takes a holistic approach to marine conservation, gathering data on a diverse range of small and large marine creatures, to gain a full understand of their ocean ecosystem.

How will I be contributing?

The goal of the project is for marine conservation volunteers to consistently gather data on ocean megafauna, to keep the national whale shark and manta ray databases current. You will collect population data, tag and measure animals, monitor environmental conditions, take id photos and record behaviour. Marine volunteers will also monitor coral reefs and work in the mangrove forests, plus log dives and analyse camera traps.

What makes this project ethical?

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. Data collected by volunteers is used for specific research projects, and databases are used in policy making to protect and preserve Mozambique’s marine wildlife.
