We think it is very important to make clear that we are NOT a voluntourism organisation, we do not offer thinly disguised diving holidays as conservation programs, our work has been ongoing for the past 7 years and is now breaking new ground in Kep province. We focus on both the Conservation (protection) and the research of Cambodia's Ocean and currently focus our full resources on Kep's Ocean in preparation and in assistance to the Local government in the creation of Kep's new Marine Protected areas.
Why pay 1000's of $$$ to large profit based voluntourism companies?
We keep our fee's to a minimum as we do NOT take two thirds of your cash for profits like some large organisations, for less than a quarter of the cost of any large volunteer agency, you can join our program and really contribute your skills while being taught new ones, Our internship programs have been providing the perfect setting and facilities for higher education students to fulfil their university requirements for many years. Our short staying volunteers get to join a fully operation program getting them involved quickly and utilising their existing skills while offering a chance to see a working conservation and research program and pick up some new skills.
Cambodia's Leading Marine Conservation and Research Organisation
Protecting Cambodia's Oceans since 2008
Whilst still being a grassroots organisation we are rapidly expanding our research programs to include aquarium research alongside field research and we need volunteers and interns with experience in Marine biology, Marine ecology and Marine conservation to help us keep up the momentum we have built over the past 6 years.
Our university internship programs are a chance to put into practice what you have learnt already while getting valuable research experience in the field and your work with us actually gets used to help highlight the habitats and marine species in need of protection.
Our current university interns have been integrating into Khmer culture and really putting their knowledge into practice working together closely with our partner organizations and The Royal Government of Cambodia.
Even if you do not have research expertise in these areas, but you have self motivation and a passion to volunteer and make a difference then you can get involved in many aspects of the volunteer work we are undertaking here in Cambodia.
For those with little or no experience we provide basic training in areas of Marine and terrestrial research, so that you can still contribute to the goals of the project.
As the longest running and most experienced marine research program in Cambodia MCC has proven itself many times to be Cambodia's leading Marine Conservation and Research Organisation, you can make a difference across all of Cambodia's coastal provinces. Our field research covers over 20 of Cambodia's Islands and three provinces so your not limited in your choices and you can experience the real Cambodia. Our captive breeding and aquarium research together with our field research is essential to the conservation of Cambodia's marine habitats. We don't just talk about it, we do it !! and your contribution makes an immediate impact.
Please email us if you are looking to be involved in a project that really makes a difference.
Our project is only made possible by you.
