GLA Ocean & Environment Conservation Programs
Water is essential for the survival of all life, and there is no source of water with a greater impact than the ocean. Students on this program will see how gray water runoff pollutes the Pacific Ocean, and impacts the community of Bahia Ballena. Learn to be a guardian of the ocean as you work on projects such as building a water filtration system and contributing to coastal recycling initiatives.
On this program, your volunteer work will focus on marine sustainability. You'll work on a data collection project that contributes to a long-term study led by the University of the South Pacific, plant mangroves to mitigate heavy coastal erosion, participate in coral restoration projects and promote sustainable use of sensitive ecological resources.
