Global Vision International Offering Volunteer Marine Environment Research Trips

Ever thought about taking a month-long vacation and helping the marine environment at the same time?

With World Oceans Day on June 8 fast approaching, why not make this the year you do more than just dive for the sake of filling out your log? This year’s theme is “Healthy Oceans, Healthy Planet,” with a focus on plastic pollution.

Volunteer travel specialists Global Vision International are offering a slew of trips to places like the Seychelles, off the coast of Mexico, Thailand and a host of other locations. You’d not just be diving to look at all the pretty fish, you’d be helping conduct research projects to better understand the marine environment.

All of GVI’s projects line up with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals in the environmental, social and economic fields.

Want to go to the Seychelles? Programs for this year leave on June 25, July 23, August 20, September 17, October 15 and November 12, with prices beginning at £2,050/US$3004/2697 Euros.

For more info about all the trips GVI is offering, check out the organization’s website at and click on the “Marine Conservation” pull-down menu.
