Fancy learning all about the underwater realm, learning to dive, and carry out life-changing conservation work in a tropical paradise? Whether you are looking for a life experience you won’t forget, a career break, gap year, improving your CV, starting a career in conservation, voluntary work abroad or just simply looking to broaden your horizons and try something new and exciting, we have the opportunity of a lifetime for you.
The main objective of Big Blue Conservation is to do as much as we can to ensure that the island remains undisturbed by the growing tourism and that the marine life is here in Koh Tao for future generations to enjoy. As well as working closely with Save Koh Tao on larger projects such as Buoyancy World and Bio Rock, we are implementing a range of smaller projects such as coral nurseries and a constructed wetland to help clean the islands grey water, as well as contributing to global research studying the impact of climate change on this beautiful environment.
In order to achieve these goals, Big Blue Conservation depends on dedicated and trained teams of expedition volunteers to help construct, maintain, monitor and develop our projects. So whether you are looking to try something new, gain life experiences, develop a career in conservation, or just fancy a break from the norm, our month-long expeditions will train you from never having dived before to knowing how to identify sharks and grow corals.
We offer Marine conservation skill development expeditions every month, where you will receive advanced training on all things watery, including coral reef biology, underwater survey training, coral nursery construction and artificial reef maintenance. Does this sound exciting??
