Volunteering in the Maldives with Marine Savers

Meet Keith, the latest Volunteer to signup for our Programme.
He took a break from his busy office job to experience life as a marine biologist here in the Maldives. He is soon helping out with the turtle patients, and learning all about our Reefscapers coral propagation project.
Keith even finds the time for some recreational diving and a spot of meditative yoga.

Marine Turtle Rescue & Rehabilitation

Marine Turtle Rescue & Rehabilitation

We have a packed report and lots of great photos from our turtle teams this month.
From the smallest – see 100s of baby hatchlings set free – to one of the largest Green turtles we’ve ever encountered ! Also, we finally say goodbye to ‘Eskimo’ as he graduates from our Head Start Programme, to be released into the ocean.
And shhh … someone is taking a snooze, and we snapped the cutest of photos !

Say hello to some colourful new arrivals, as we admit some new species into our Fish Lab.
And then join us on marine safari, both above and below the waves, as we go dolphin spotting, take a swim with sharks and rays, and keep a look out for wild sea turtles and clownfish on the reef.
