Plastic pollution has become a huge buzz word over the last few years. With over 8 million tonnes of plastic ending up in our oceans every year, this comes as no surprise.
Our marine life and coral reefs are threatened, many of which end up dying due to suffocation and ingestion of plastic. This loss of marine life causes a ripple effect that disrupts fishing, food supply, tourism, and the entire marine ecosystem.
You can join us in the fight against plastic pollution through practical and awareness work in countries around the world.
As a volunteer, you can assist with the following:
- Awareness campaigns to reduce single-use plastic consumption and encourage recycling
- Beach and community clean-ups
- Salvage dives
People are coming together to combat this issue and it’s time to play your part. Every little bit makes a difference.
So, if you’re eager to get involved in a practical way to save our oceans in 2019, then take a look at some of our best Conservation volunteer abroad programmes:
