Global Vi­sion In­ter­na­tional (GVI) of­fers vol­un­teer­ing pro­grams in 13 coun­tries, many of which are aligned to the 17 United Na­tions Sus­tain­able Devel­op­ment Goals. One of the best lo­ca­tions to merge vol­un­tourism with trop­i­cal is­land heaven is the Seychelles. There are a num­ber of pro­grams in this par­adise, all op­er­ated from Curieuse Is­land. One pro­gram fo­cuses on en­sur­ing the long-term sur­vival of sickle fin le­mon sharks, hawks­bill and green tur­tles. Spend time on the stun­ning is­land of Curieuse while you con­trib­ute to vi­tal con­ser­va­tion ef­forts to pre­serve some of the is­lands’ most im­por­tant species. Work to­ward en­sur­ing the long-term sur­vival of both the sickle fin le­mon shark as well as the hawks­bill and green tur­tles. Vol­un­teers will stay on the re­search sta­tion on the is­land and will take part in the le­mon shark catch-and-re­lease pro­gram, as well as gath­er­ing data on shark pups. Par­tic­i­pants will also study the nest­ing suc­cess and habits of both hawks­bill and green tur­tles. Other pro­grams are also avail­able, in­clud­ing some for qual­i­fied scuba divers.
