Coral Cay Conservation provide you with a unique opportunity to plan and run your own 3-4 week overseas expedition. You could be diving on a conservation project in either Southern Leyte, Philippines or Montserrat in the Caribbean, living and working with remote fishing communities. Whichever destination and project you choose, you are guaranteed to take away a lasting memory of the fantastic culture you have witnessed as well as making a lasting contribution to the local community. The expedition will not only broaden your horizons, it will also be curriculum supporting.
More importantly you will have something you can be proud to put on your CV that's highly valued by universities and employers alike. Our expeditions can offer you 70 UCAS points as well as qualifying for the Duke of Edinburgh's Award (residential section).
Coral Cay Conservation brings together teams of ten to twenty young volunteers, forging friendships that will last for years.
If you would like further information or would like us to come and give a presentation at your school, please contact us.
