Belize is home to some of the most beautiful and unspoilt marine life in the world, yet this beauty and tranquility is under threat.  As a volunteer on this fascinating programme, you’ll have the opportunity to play your part in vital research survey dives in the waters off the stunning Belizean coastline!  If you haven’t dived before, don’t worry as we’ll include a PADI Open Water Dive Course for you to help you make the most of your time in Belize!  There are many areas of study for the team and volunteers in Belize, some of which include a Lionfish research project, Lobster surveys, Conch surveys, Reef checks, Coral watch and a Whale Shark research project.  All of these studies and surveys are collecting extremely valuable information, which is helping to protect the delicate marine life in the area and secure a brighter future for the ecosystems.
