Pod Volunteer offers volunteers the opportunity to join one of our research teams around the world, and contribute to marine conservation efforts. If you haven't dived before you can learn to dive on project, or you could develop your existing dive skills!

Caribbean Reef Conservation in Belize

We are looking for volunteers to join the local team on a private island in the Caribbean to collect data, monitor species and document sightings. The data collected by volunteers assists the local government's decision making regarding fishing in the region, as well as highlighting how best to protect the marine environment from invasive species and climate change.

Marine Conservation in Thailand

Join the research team on the beautiful island of Koh Tao and explore the world famous dive sites whilst supporting conservation and research initiatives. The initiatives volunteers contribute towards enable the protection and restoration of reefs by partaking in artificial reef installations, coral predator monitoring, baby turtle rehabilitation and much more!

Marine Conservation in South Africa

Assist global marine conservation alongside an active research team in Sodwana Bay, one of the world's prime dive locations. Volunteers help the team in their turtle, shark, manta ray and potato bass research, contributing to global studies on the migratory patterns of mega fauna. The team also work with the local community to highlight the importance of protecting these marine ecosystems.
