Volunteer divers needed in tropics

We are looking for a capable volunteer diver to ID, count and measure sea cucumber stocks in Seychelles. The project is planned for 30 days around Mahe and Prasline islands to assess the sea cucumber stock dynamics.

Successful volunteer needs to be a certified diver with at least 30 dives.  Training will include identification of sea cucumbers and work censusing techniques using under water scooters. While we have limited funding we will provide room and board. Travelling cost to and from the Seychelles, however, will have to be absorbed by the volunteer.  This project will be an excellent opportunity to gain underwater scientific diving skills while spending a month on board a research vessel.  Interested individuals please respond via email with your CV and a short note describing your interests and previous experience to hkoike@hawaii.edu.
