Volunteer Banner

Volunteers are the backbone of the continuation and progress of our research, education and conservation efforts.

Our programs provide a unique opportunity for volunteer research assistants and interns to gain measurable skills in fieldwork and survey methods, as well as gain knowledge in marine animal biology and ecology. Our volunteers will have a chance to be part of a conservation project actively working within the local community to achieve a sustainable tourism industry that will both benefit the local stakeholders and have an impact on the protection of endangered species.
We are currently accepting volunteers for our whale shark projects in Cebu and Leyte, and for our devil rays fisheries project in Bohol. Interested individuals may send their CV and cover letter to volunteer@lamave.org. We will send successful applicants a comprehensive a volunteer pack with more detailed information about the project.
