Experience true Bali surrounded by beautiful hills, waterfalls and the Java/Indian ocean filled with dolphins. Gain authentic Balinese culture by living in the heart of the community situated 1 minute walk from the beach.

On our marine conservation Scuba diving, Naturalist, Conservationist volunteer program you will be focusing mainly on water-based activities such as coral farming, reef clean up and exploring incredible dive spots such as: Lovina reef, Menjangan Island and Tulamben shipwreck.

Coral farm has new coral fragments (nubbins) growing, regular cleaning is required to keep the algae away. Once they are healthy, the new frames to protect them [called the nursery] can be built. You will be contributing to taking broken coral fragments and giving them a second chance to survive at our nursery. Some frames will remain on our nursery permanently as fish are using them as homes for their juveniles. 

Part taking in 'Reef cleans up' is also a vital element to this placement. Keeping the ocean clean and free of old fishing nets will help to restore the natural reefs. 

30% Theory-based learning includes assisting the environmental educators' in local schools which will involve practical tasks in and out of the classroom. Outdoor learning will take you onto the local beach and other outdoor community engagement activities!
