Shoals Rodrigues is looking for a self-funding volunteer for their marine
education programme.

Shoals Rodrigues is a Mauritian NGO which was formed from the Shoals of
Capricorn Programme, an initiative run by the Royal Geographical Society
and Royal Society from 1999-2001.  Based on the island of Rodrigues, this
project was first set up in 1999 to carry out an integrated marine
research, training and education project. 

Club Mer is the marine education and activity programme involving local
children in classes, snorkeling, diving and scientific projects.

You would work alongside our Rodriguan education assistants, developing
their knowledge and confidence as well as helping to run the classes and
activities. There will be plenty of scope to develop new ideas or projects.

Your qualities would include: 

Communication and classroom skills 
Water safety, swimming and snorkeling skills 
Natural flair for teaching and talking about the marine environment 
Good knowledge of coral reef ecology and marine biology
Language skills (French speaker)
Other useful assets: Artistic, Drama, Internet
Candidates must be available for at least three months and preferably for
six months. 
Further details about the project are at
Current funding means that we can only presently offer accommodation, but a
local per-diem may be negotiable after a probationary period. 

Please apply with a C.V. and a covering letter (before 25th December)  to:

Tom Hooper,
Shoals Rodrigues,
Pointe Monier,
