Erin
“My life will never be the same after this. If there is one thing that I have to stress to anyone interested in volunteering, it’s this – don’t be afraid to do something that challenges every part of you, to do something you’ve never done before – dive head first into this experience and soak in every second of it – learn everything you possibly can – it is once in a lifetime and I promise, it’ll be worth it.”

“This is a great program in its beginning. The potential is really endless. I hope to return one day and give back to a program that gave me very much.”

Carina Remmel

“I highly recommend this program to anyone interested in shark conservation/research or even those just looking for a unique way to spend some of their vacation time. The team provided an excellent learning environment. With a perfect balance of demonstration and hands-on experience I was able to not only increase my knowledge but I gained an invaluable understanding of conservation efforts.”
