Become a marine conservation volunteer on the island of Mauritius in the Indian Ocean and take part in a coral reef monitoring volunteer and internship programme. Get involved with lagoon monitoring, beach cleaning, coral farming, mangrove planting, sea turtle monitoring and local community projects.
Mauritius is, with La Réunion and Rodrigues, an island in the Mascarene Archipelago, located in the Indian Ocean at approximately 2000 km off the coast of Africa and 900 km from Madagascar. Set on a breathtaking lagoon, the volunteer project is situated in Pointe d’Esny, on the South East coast of Mauritius. Mahébourg is a colourful and lively town, steeped in Mauritian history.
Every Friday, volunteers take part in an eco-activity discovering the treasures of Mauritius, including visiting the Île Aux Aigrettes island where giant tortoises roam freely, kayaking through the mangroves in the North, visiting the world-famous Pamplemousses Botanical Gardens or discovering the Chamarel Seven Coloured Earth.
