Program Capacity: 24 Program Focuses Will get involved in a variety of activities such as:
Volunteers will be allocated fish, coral or invertebrates as part of reef monitoring. Allocations will be sent to the support coordinator 4 weeks prior to their arrival to be forwarded to the participants, so they have plenty of time to study before coming to base.
Every volunteer will be expected to be familiar with the study materials before they arrive to speed up the process of getting them to monitoring level.
We monitor all these topics at our 24 sites over the North-West coast of Mahe.
Incidental Sightings is something that everyone gets involved with on a daily basis. We compile a species list and maintain a record of the daily occurrences of different marine creatures at the various dive sites. This data is passed onto OBIS Seamap which is an online database to see populations of different big species around the world.
All volunteers will also get involved with monthly dives to clean up the reef.
Dive Against Debris (DAD) which the data goes to Project AWARE who are monitoring the levels of trash that is being found on dive sites around the world.
Everyone will take part in monitoring for Coral Watch, which is a worldwide coral monitoring methodology which looks into the levels of bleaching that is occurring on corals.
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), otherwise known as the Global Goals, are a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity.
