Join a marine and coral reef conservation project on Koh Phangan island in Thailand’s Samui archipelago. A great opportunity for students looking to gain diving and scientific research experience in a stunning tropical setting and kickstart a career in marine conservation.
The project offers interns the opportunity to experience marine biology by immediate application in the field, while still incorporating the fundamental theory necessary to be an effective conservationist. Everyone at the station is unbelievably supportive and oriented towards making interns self-sufficient from the first day.
