Nicknamed the Emerald Isle of the Caribbean, Montserrat is home to lush green vegetation and sapphire blue waters. Stunning scenery houses a wealth of unique wildlife, with many fascinating species found nowhere else in the world. However, following a series of volcanic eruptions on the island which began in 1995, Montserrat’s tropical forests and coral reefs have come under increasing pressure and now work needs to be done to help preserve these extraordinary ecosystems for the future.
Marine volunteers will assist with our on-going coral reef and seagrass surveys. You will receive all the training you need to become a fully competent PADI diver and to learn to identify the marine species that can be found in Montserrat’s waters. The data collected by marine volunteers will be the first comprehensive survey of Montserrat’s marine resources since the volcanic eruptions in the mid-1990s and will be used to help develop a Locally Managed Marine Area.
