  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • 9 people are interested

  • Join a marine conservation internship in Australia’s Great Barrier Reef. Help to protect this amazing natural wonder and develop your conservation and research skills alongside experienced marine biologists.

    During your stay, you will participate in a wide range of activities on the reef, including ecology training, in-water reef monitoring, data collection and research, as well as educational projects within the local community.

    The Great Barrier Reef is the world’s largest coral reef. It is one of the most iconic natural wonders of the world, and yet there is so much more we need to learn about the ecosystem and how to protect it. The reef is under growing threat from impacts of cyclones, invasive Crown-of-Thorns and coral bleaching from climate change.

    During the weekends, you will have free time to relax and enjoy the city, or explore nearby attractions like Tjapukai Aboriginal Cultural Park and Daintree National Park which spans mountainous tropical rainforests, gorges and beaches.
