Some last minute changes of plan have created 2 volunteer vacancies with OceansWatch, www.oceanswatch.org suitable for recent Marine Biology, Environmental Science or Oceanography graduates. PADI Divemaster qualifications would be an advantage as would Reef Check training or Pacific Fish and Invert ID experience. 

Position 1.

Team Scientist for a trip by yacht to Vanuatu, The Solomon Islands and Papua New Guinea. Depart New Zealand late May or join the Yacht in early June in Vanuatu. Depart from Cairns, Australia mid October. 

Position 2

Team Scientist (in co-operation with another OceansWatch scientist). This trip is solely in Vanuatu and volunteers will be accommodated on OceansWatch members yachts. 

The work will mainly involve basic Reef Check surveying and working with local communities. It could (in PNG) include some humanitarian work. There may be opportunities for volunteers to conduct their own research.
