As a bird lover, you’re looking for the perfect way to give back and help protect bird populations. Why not do it while enjoying a beautiful tropical vacation?

Here is your answer, a 7-day volunteer program with amazing opportunities to participate in various roles that all work towards the same goal: protecting birds!

During your work days, you’ll take part in data collection, surveys, environmental and habitat conservation, research and more. The information you collect will be part of implementing the protective measures needed in the locations they are needed. This collaboration, your contribution, makes this work a reality and is extremely important. 

During your free time, take some time to enjoy the warm tropical weather. Go snorkeling in the clear blue sea, watching for sea life which appear in a rainbow of color. Take a dip in the warm turquoise waters, relax on the white-sand beaches and listen to the soft sounds of waves rolling in. 

Liveaboard a 75-foot research schooner for the week as you explore the uninhabited islands, picture-perfect beaches and revel in the unlimited photo opportunities.
