Each day (Monday - Friday) you will get involved in a variety of different activities, which will include:

- Swimming ethically with wild dolphins in their natural habitat

- Educating local people on the importance of marine conservation

- Running a conservation club for young children

- Facilitating ethical boat tour workshops
