Marine Expedition and PADI Divemaster Marine Conservation Internship
Join GVI’s marine conservation and research efforts in Mexico where you will gain valuable experience in the conservation field as well as acquiring your PADI Divemaster certification.
Join our marine conservation and scuba diving internship where you will assist in critical marine conservation projects in the Yucatan Peninsula, Mexico.
You will first take part in our Marine Conservation Expedition where you will live and work for 12 weeks with a GVI research team and undergo extensive training. Your diving skills will be taken to Rescue Diver level and you will gain an intimate knowledge of the local marine ecosystem.
You will be assessed each week in order to measure your progress, and if you are successful on your expedition you will then proceed to complete your PADI Divemaster course during your 12 week work placement with the conservation team on site. This exciting opportunity will provide practical experience in the marine conservation field as you assist with daily operations and research.
Once you have successfully completed the internship, qualifying candidates may be given the opportunity to work for GVI or selected partner organisations in Mexico, or in other countries around the world where GVI operate. There are field work positions that can be paid or unpaid, which go on from one month to one year, however availability varies. Qualification for positions is at the sole discretion of Global Vision International
All internships are geared at developing your leadership and role model skills, allowing you to develop a variety of key soft and hard skills that will put you a step ahead the rest of the pack. GVI have been running community development, education, and conservation projects since 1997 and our highly experienced field staff will help you gain and improve vital skill sets to improve your future job prospects. GVI secures placements for participants on site and the training you receive before hand prepares you for this phase of the programme.
