Overview

If traveling to Madagascar has always been your dream, then Volunteering Solutions is here to fulfill it, in the most unique manner. This magical island country is home to some of the world's most spectacular and least explored dive sites and now, you can receive
comprehensive practical scuba-diving lessons and theory training to prepare yourself to undertake research-based activities at sea.

The Marine Conservation Program has been designed in collaboration with oceanographic organizations to gather vital raw scientific data through a number of initiatives including Reef Surveys; Coral Bleaching Assessments; Nudibranch Surveys; Artificial Reef Surveys; Turtle Monitoring; Invasive Species Monitoring; Beach Clean Management etc. 

This region has immense multi-colored corals and luxuriant seagrass beds which provide rich feeding grounds for an extraordinary array of colorful reef fish, rays, sea urchins, anemones, octopus and even sea turtles, while barracuda, sharks, dolphins, migrating whales and shoals of pelagics cruise the deep blue waters offshore. You'll get to indulge yourself in learning more about the ecosystem and know how the fishing communities utilize the resources to their best capacity.

Volunteers are taught the methodology and diving techniques required for coral baseline surveying, a key skill in marine conservation as a universal approach to monitoring the state of coral reefs. In addition, volunteers are taught how our work fits into the bigger picture of conservation management required for establishing marine protected areas and improving coastal ecosystems.

Needless to say, it'll be a great volunteering opportunity as well as a learning journey for all those gap year travelers, backpackers, and students who are keen to experience something out of the box.
