What do our past volunteers say?

“My experience in Portugal joining the Marine Conservation program has been incredible. In addition to learning about the importance of marine ecosystems, I have met wonderful people from all over the world. I would like to praise the work of Ana Matos, the program coordinator of Impactrip, and the two diving instructors I had, Nuno Pereira and Sydney. Their enthusiasm and experience helped me to achieve my goals within the volunteering program and fully enjoy my time in Portugal.” - Andrea M, Marine Conservation Program, Portugal
