About the program

Working on a tropical island, far removed from the tourist trail, Reach Out Volunteers help to preserve some of the most beautiful coral reefs in the world that have been badly damaged by harmful fishing practices including commercial trawling.

We collect data to support an application for protected fishing zones for the use of the local communities, teach English to the village children and help to install new infrastructure such as water pumps and rubbish disposal facilities.

A key part of this program is monitoring the success of the regeneration program for unique populations of marine life such as the local sea horse.
