Volunteer in Plettenberg Bay with marine wildlife including endangered species:  Coastal Conservation and Education Project’s vision is to create a conservation model for Plettenberg Bay that ensures the sustained utilisation of marine and coastal resources through community involvement, management and research.  You will be assisting in boat and land based surveys where the data collected by you and your team will be used to help ensure the long term survival of marine mammals inhabiting the Western Indian Ocean.  Information that you gather will also be used to promote sustainable eco tourism.
