Every year volunteers from around the world participate in field research projects with the Manta Trust to collect scientific data and promote the conservation of manta rays through educational awareness campaigns.
If you want to work with us as a field volunteer you need to be 21 years or older, fit, a strong swimmer and an advanced open water diver, enthusiastic, computer literate, organised, willing to work long hours and passionate about marine conservation.
We also have opportunities for those who do not want to travel…. Why not dedicate some of your free time to helping us ID our mantas online? Or if you’ve been fortunate to snorkel or dive with manta rays on your holidays you can even submit and annotate your own manta photos to our online database, upload your images through our online submission form and input your data!
We advertise all our vacancies via our Facebook Page and in our Recent News section on the website and any current vacancies are listed below. If there is a position you are interested in please send your CV, along with a covering letter to tell us more about you, why you would like to pursue a volunteer position with us and what skills you can bring to The Manta Trust to firstname.lastname@example.org with reference to the vacancy you are interested in.
