Want to get PADI certified and save the ocean at the same time? Travel to the Andaman Sea and join our Marine Conservation Program in Thailand on the beautiful beaches of Koh Tao!
In your first week as a marine conservation volunteer in Thailand you'll learn how to scuba dive and obtain your PADI Open Water Diver certificate. After you get your certificate, you’ll be involved in marine surveys and coral propagation activities that promote the health of our oceans. Coral propagation is a cost effective way to breed corals and restore reefs, but more importantly, it helps alleviate the demand placed on reefs to preserve endangered species.
Out of the water, you’ll participate in beach clean-ups along the coastline, as litter and trash can be extremely harmful to marine wildlife. You’ll raise awareness about the importance of protecting our oceans in the local community and plant mangroves along the coastline. Mangroves protect coasts from erosion and absorb a large amount of carbon from the atmosphere. This Marine Conservation Program is a great way to get your hands dirty. It’s also a start towards better health for our oceans.
