Volunteer for a Marine Conservation project in South Africa
Welcome to the Baywatch Marine Conservation Project, based in Port Elizabeth, South Africa.
The aims of the Baywatch Project are to:
As far as we know, the Baywatch Project is the only marine volunteering project in the world where volunteers have the opportunity of seeing the big 7 animals (Lion, Elephant, Leopard, Buffalo, Rhino, Great White Shark, Southern Right Whale) in one day. We are the only organisation in Algoa Bay with a whale and dolphin watching license, which allows us close encounters with these wonderful animals.
Unlike most other volunteering projects, our volunteers are needed to help with the actual running of the business on a daily basis. This will include driving and maintaining the two motorised catamarans, providing the guests with information on marine animals and assisting with research projects.
Volunteers are accommodated for in private quarters which has a sea view and regular sightings of whales, dolphins and other marine animals. Volunteers will get breakfast and dinner, daily, and will be provided with their own vehicle.
