Since then, Frontier has grown to be the premier provider of gap year, volunteering, internships and ethical travel. With accredited Frontier qualifications through ASDAN and EDEXCEL, you can combine fun and adventure with the chance to improve your CV.
Marine Conservation Volunteering and Internship Placements Worldwide
Harmful fishing practices and overfishing have left the oceans with damaged reefs and threatened marine species. Covering more than 70 percent of the earth’s surface and as one of the most biodiverse parts of the planet, the ocean is essential to keeping the world’s ecosystem healthy. Not only is it a source of vast biodiversity, it provides much of the food and income for many communities globally.
By mapping habitats and educating local communities, Frontier’s projects and the volunteers that help undertake the research aim to protect marine ecosystems and to implement sustainable coastal management. Volunteers carry out vital research into the health of the reefs and species populations that then inform environmental policy, with the eventual aim of restoring and protecting marine biodiversity.
While on a Frontier marine conservation and Diving placement, you can earn your PADI diving qualification and a BTEC in Tropical Habitat Conservation. We also offer longer-term placements for students wishing to undertake field work and research to support their degree, masters or PhD.
Less experienced volunteers are also very welcome, and it’s a great opportunity to dive in unique locations while getting a taste for marine conservation work!
