Award-winning NGO Love The Oceans will be doing a seminar about their marine conservation work in Mozambique and how Glasgow students can get involved. This is a great opportunity to meet an NGO research professional and ask any questions you may have about working with this organisation or in this industry.
Love The Oceans is a non-profit marine conservation organisation in Jangamo Bay, Mozambique. We use research, education and diving to drive action towards a more sustainable future. Our mission is to establish a marine protected area in Jangamo. Love The Oceans was recently recognised as 1 of 15 global grassroots #forcesforchange by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and received international recognition for our work. We’re also the recipient of the 2021 Oceans Award.
We offer a cutting edge ethical marine conservation program that gives individuals the chance to work alongside our marine biologists and the local community helping with conservation and research.
Volunteer field assistants gain experience through our research and community outreach over the space of 2 – 6 weeks (plus an optional extra terrestrial safari week!). As a field assistant, you form an essential part of our team. You will rotate around our principal activities of:
– Fisheries data collection
– Megafauna surveys
– Humpback whale research
– Coral reef surveys
– Teaching and painting at the local schools
– Teaching swimming lessons to local children and adults
This is a once in a lifetime opportunity that will not only give you hands on practical experience that you will not get elsewhere, but also a leg up in the world of conservation careers!
