Travel to the crystal clear waters of Seychelles as a member of an expedition and work on critical marine conservation projects amongst the beautiful islands of Seychelles. 

On this program, you will contribute towards various conservation-related surveys aimed at providing data to the Seychelles Parks and Gardens Authority (formerly Seychelles National Marine Park Authority – SNPA) and local government on coral reef, fish and invertebrate research and assist with the development of environmental education awareness.

You’ll spend a large part of your time on this expedition scuba diving and as such you need to be qualified to at least PADI Open Water, or equivalent before joining the program.

  • Learning how to identify fish, coral or invertebrates in the Indian Ocean.
  • Earning your PADI Advanced Open Water certificate.
  • Complete GVI & PADI’s unique qualification, the PADI Reef Ecosystem Diver (RESD) Specialty.
  • Exploring different dive sites around the tropical island of Mahe, searching for ‘mega-fauna’ in the area, such as sharks, rays, and dolphins and learning more about the wider ecosystem.
  • Developing the techniques needed to survey coral reefs.
  • Participation in local ecosystem surveying including seagrass monitoring, mangrove species identification and nudibranch diversity checks.
