Diving & Marine Conservation in Thailand

Company : Projects Abroad
Location : Ao Nang
Duration: 1 week to 1 Year+
Approx Costs: 1750 to 3000+ £ Pound (UK)

Our Diving & Marine Conservation Project in Thailand takes place along the beautiful Andaman Sea coast near Ao Nang.

It's a great project for anyone interested in marine biology, environmental issues, preserving our eco-systems and protecting the planet.

The main aim of our project is to protect the coral reefs and associated species, as well as providing environmental to locals and people that use the area. The province also has some of the oldest remaining mangrove and lowland forests in Thailand, which is an essential nursery ground to many coral reef fish - part of our project also involves monitoring and replanting the mangroves.

As part of your initial training, volunteers will also be trained as a PADI Open Water Diver - as a certified scuba diver you will then be able to fully participate in the underwater surveys and conservation dives. If you are already a certified diver, we can provide you with your PADI Advanced Open Water Diver training.

As well as participating in data collection and Dive Against Debris dives, volunteers will also participate in workshops, community outreach and education, beach clean-ups and reforestation work.

We also have Diving & Marine Conservation projects in Belize and Cambodia!

Projects Abroad Diving & Marine Conservation in Thailand Reviews

Loved this project!

I took part in this project and I loved it! Everything was well organised but we still had much freedom in choosing our activities. I’ve made many friends there as well! I highly recommend the project in Thailand. The price was quite high, but the experience was well worth it.
