What our volunteers say
The expedition in Andava was incredible! I was blown away by the Malagasy culture, the nature and just the way of life. It was an awesome combination of fun, conservation and community support! Can’t wait for my next expedition with BV!
Madagascar, June 2017
It was an amazing experience I’ll never forget. I learnt so much about coral reefs and fish and got to see so much wildlife I’d never seen before. I genuinely enjoyed every single day and the BV staff made the experience a joy. Thank you so much!
Belize, June 2017
It was a great experience to witness first hand the enormous impact BV has with the local community here and a privilege to contribute. I learnt a great deal on this expedition and it is an experience I will never forget - thank you!

About Blue Ventures

Blue Ventures develops locally-led approaches to marine management that benefit people and nature alike.

By listening and responding to basic needs, we design models that catalyse and sustain marine conservation, unlocking the potential of coastal communities to manage their resources.

We work in places where the ocean is vital to local cultures and economies, and are committed to advancing the rights of small-scale fishers throughout the coastal tropics.

Our work plays a critical role in rebuilding coastal fisheries, empowering communities with the means to safeguard their futures, reversing biodiversity loss, improving food security and building resilience to climate change.

You can join us as a marine conservation volunteer on our international award-winning expeditions – do something meaningful on your next adventure!
