Indo Ocean Project is a marine research and conservation program in the heart of the coral triangle, training the next generation of dive professionals through our conservation divemaster internship program. Our field expeditions in Indonesia hosts international and local research projects on marine conservation efforts including marine megafauna, coral restoration, ecological monitoring, community outreach and education programs. We are constantly seeking hardworking and enthusiastic people who take part in our divemaster/research diver-training program and join the research team. You don’t need to be a diver or a scientist to take part! Our project relies on the experience and expertise of our volunteers from around the world.
Everything is connected
My DM Instructor Serena holds a great deal of diving knowledge & experience. She had been one of my most valuable teachers and mentors in my life to date.
If anyone is considering doing their DM, especially any marine biology folk out there; I can’t recommend this program more highly.They are making important change at an on-ground level using data collected by the interns: BRUV deployment, indicator species surveys, turtle ID, mangrove restoration and coral reef restoration.
Can not recommend this IOP enough, give yourself the opportunity to experience diving through this beautiful fight and love for the ocean <3
