Volunteering Abroad Shouldn't Cost the Earth

Marine Reef Conservation Belize

 

Description

We offer a unique volunteer marine conservation diving experience - an all-inclusive Monday thru Friday diving and marine conservation volunteer trip on a small private island in the Caribbean Sea situated on the Belize Barrier Reef. It is a great place for those wanting to make a difference through our hands-on volunteer marine conservation programs. Our goal is to preserve and manage the Belize Barrier Reef for generations to come by inspiring, educating, and encouraging change via our volunteer citizen-scientists. Our volunteers truly are the change they wish to see in the world! ReefCI is one of the leading NGOs/non-profit marine conservation organizations in Belize. ReefCI has been developing and working on a wide variety of marine conservation projects to protect the Belize Barrier Reef and ocean ecosystem for over 13 years. ReefCI is a registered NGO in Belize as well as a registered non-profit in the USA.
