What's the project about?

Southern Mozambique is one of the world’s top 10 scuba diving locations. The area is home to large populations of whale sharks, manta rays and humpback whales. Our marine conservation project is focused on the long-term protection of marine megafauna. Marine conservation volunteers take a holistic approach to conservation, gathering data on a range of small and large creatures, to gain a full understanding of the ocean ecosystem.

How will I be contributing?

The goal of the project is for marine conservation volunteers to consistently gather data on ocean megafauna. Thus ensuring the national whale shark and manta ray databases are kept up-to-date. 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 conservation volunteer programme was set up to give citizen scientists the opportunity to participate in vital marine monitoring and research. Whilst 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.
