Description

Overview
Immerse yourself in the island lifestyle, supporting our long-term projects and local partners. You will be contributing to island conservation projects on Curieuse Island, working with endemic flora and fauna while also contributing towards the long-term survival of endangered species. Curieuse is the fifth largest of the Seychelles inner granitic islands, and the island is beautiful and mostly uninhabited, with thick vegetation all around. The island itself is a national park with the surrounding waters and coral reefs also protected. You will travel to Curieuse each day by boat from your accommodation on Praslin, another nearby Island.

This project has been specially designed for those looking to volunteer, but are aged between 15 and 17 years old. Throughout this project, our younger volunteers will have greater supervision, training, and world-class leaders in the field who have been chosen for their mix of relevant experience and ability to mentor and inspire young people.

If you are looking to learn more about conservation, contribute to a meaningful project and want to spend some time in an incredible location, you don't have to look any further.
