I’ve been working as a Marine Research Officer on the Frontier Tanzania Marine Conservation ajnd Diving projeft and I’m loving every minute. The people on camp are great and the location we are in is fantastic! We carry out baseline surveys on the local reefs, mangroves, and seagrass meadows to monitor for any change in reef health or species diversity. The data we collect is then used to produce eight science reports a year on our findings as well as numerous other articles written with results from side projects. All the volunteers on the project help gather the data and everybody helps out around camp. The living conditions on camp are very basic with long drop toilets and outdoor showers but it is nice to get back to basics and live without the luxuries of home, it really makes you appreciate what you’ve got.
