Dear listers

I would like to get some information on volunteer or 
compensated position in marine conservation activities 
during the summer months (May through August). I am a 
Marine Science instructor at the College of the Marshall 
Islands and I have a PhD in Marine Environmental Sciences. 
I am strongly interested in field work for conservation 
purposes and in education and outreach of local people in 
developing countries.  I have a dive master certification 
and experience with underwater surveys for conservation 
I would be really grateful if you could give me 
information on such issues.
Thank you all very much in advance, and have a nice week!!
