With 4 years of experience in Cambodia and a fully operational team of experienced, Marine biologists, Marine ecologists and environmental scientists Marine Conservation Cambodia welcomes international research assistants looking to gain practical conservation and research experience in the field, you can get involved our ongoing Marine research programs, community development projects and obtain your scuba diving qualifications while experiencing life on a beautiful Cambodian island. We need your help and you can really make a difference using our established conservation network. Many of our past interns and volunteers have either continued on to successfully complete their education or moved directly on into full time marine research or conservation work using the practical experience they gained with us.
If you are a non-diver, our experienced PADI instructors can train you up to PADI Advanced open Water Level within the first two weeks of your stay, after which you will be ready for training in underwater marine survey techniques so you can start collecting data as a marine researcher. You will not only gain personal skills and experience, but the data you collect go’s directly toward the development and maintenance of Cambodia’s First Marine Protected Area.
