Fishing Village Conservation Volunteer Prachuap Khiri Khan Thailand

Project Overview

Grab at the chance to experience incredible marine life while volunteering during your gap year! If you’re qualified in diving, this project will be even more exciting for you but if you’re not there’s still plenty for you to get involved with. Located in a fishing village in Southern Thailand, unspoiled by tourism, the community offers opportunities to work on four of their projects. Each of their projects, Blue Crab Conservation, Coral Reef Rehabilitation, Mangrove Tree Planting and Environmental Awareness Teaching, aim to build a sustainable environment and to develop understanding and knowledge of how to care for nature. Whichever program you participate in, you will have hands-on experiences as well as a chance to immerse yourself in the lifestyle of the community.

Blue Crab Conservation

Living in waterways, creeks and rivers connecting to the sea, the blue crab has become endangered as a result of over fishing. In order to combat this, the project harvests eggs and releases the newborns back into the sea. As a participant, you will have an active role on this project, learning how to safely collect, incubate and hatch the eggs, as well as how to look after the young.

Coral Reef Rehabilitation

Over the course of many years of incorrect fishing methods being used in the area, much of the coral reef and a large variety of fish species have been depleted or wiped out. As part of the rehabilitation program, dead corals are embedded in concrete and then placed at least 4 metres deep into the sea. Polyps will then grow on the dead coral, creating an environment that once more attracts life to the area. This is where a diving certificate will enhance your experience! If you have one, you will be able to dive to the locations of the dead coral that has already been placed and update the coordinators on the progress. If you don’t have a certificate, don’t worry, you can still get involved with preparing the dead coral and taking it to the shallower sections of water.

***This project will be unavailable during rainy season (October – December).***

Mangrove Tree Planting

Deforestation has resulted in the mangrove trees in the area being thinly spread out. In the past, the trees were in abundance in the area. In order to work towards restoring the area, you will be able to help to replant mangroves in the area. Your work will have a positive impact on the environment giving you a feeling of satisfaction!

Environmental Awareness Teaching

To have a real impact on the future, the best method is to educate the children! And that is exactly what this part of the project is about. In conjunction with local teachers and village leaders, you will work at a local school teaching the children how to care for the local environment. You’ll be educating them about beach cleaning, separating rubbish for recycling etc, and the basics of environmental science.

Please Note: Projects start on a Monday, however you should arrive over the weekend on either Saturday or Sunday.
