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.
