Marine Conservation Volunteering in Kenya

Kenya prides itself of a rich marine life, and you can work as a volunteer with us on marine conservation. If you are used to work indepently, with initiative, this fascinating animal conservation project is for you.

Rich marine life along Kenya’s coastline

In Kenya’s litoral you can even find dolphins, who need to be protected. Our main goal with this environmental project is introducing you to the fascinating marine life in Kenya and to develop environmental initiatives to preserve the fauna in the ocean. With your volunteer work you also can further sustainable tourism in order to show the natural beauty to tourists, without destroying the environment. Join us for this adventure in Africa!

Tropical Fishes close to the Reef

The reef attracts an incredible range of fish, most of which are almost iridescent in colour and fantastically marked. Look out for the celestial blue and jade-green parrotfish, striped zebra fish, multi-coloured angelfish and the soup plate-sized butterfly fish. Clouds of tiny damselfish also often hover above the branching coral, and under deep ledges you may catch a glimpse of the magnificent lionfish with its mane of sharp spikes (a sting from this fish can be very painful). Hunting sharks, rays, turtle and starfish also hunt the reef.

Turtles and Dolphins on the Kenyan coastline

Kenya’s reef and lagoons also prove popular with the endangered green, hawksbill, loggerhead, Ridley and leatherback sea turtles. Dolphins too are regular visitors to the area and can be encountered singly or in schools, above and below the waves.
