Marine Conservation with Frontier

Marine Conservation Volunteering


Despite covering over 70% of our planet, only 0.6% of the world oceans are protected. Humans are damaging the world’s fragile marine ecosystems and the species they support at an alarming rate. Fishing practices are unsustainable, with stocks of our fished species expected to collapse before 2050. Billions of unwanted fish and other animals are caught as bycatch, with dolphins, turtles, seabirds, sharks, and corals dying due to inefficient, illegal, and destructive fishing practices. Pollution is suffocating and poisoning our oceans through oil spills, sewage, chemical and agricultural waste and plastic, with 20 million tonnes of plastic entering the oceans each year. So what can you do?

 


Wildlife conservation programmes are vitally important in the effort to protect species and their habitats. Frontier runs several marine conservation programmes, working in some of the most biodiverse but threatened marine areas on the planet. Volunteers support our trained scientific researchers in collecting baseline data and monitoring changes in biodiversity, contributing to the protection of threatened wildlife and ecosystems, whilst having the privilege of observing wildlife in its natural habitat. We are currently working on the protection of coral reefs, mangrove forests and seagrass meadows, and with species of shark, ray, turtle, dolphin, manatee and hundreds of fish and invertebrate species. Data collected on these projects is used to inform and educate governments, businesses and communities responsible for the protection of these areas and species.
