- My Summary
We host participants from all over the globe that help our research team to promote shark conservation and conduct citizen scientific research. Our mission is to create a research and education station in Indonesia where people from around the world can make a difference during their holiday.
We conduct marine research for effective marine management worldwide and we do this by partnering up with multiple local and international organizations and researchers. The more we share, the more we have. That’s why our data sets are available for free to anyone in the world.
With the abundance data we collect we want to prove that the reefs surrounding the Gili Islands in Indonesia are a shark nursery area. In 2019 the government will review the Gili Matra Marine Park and we would love to see that they will create the first official shark nursery around the Gili Islands.
We are always looking for enthusiastic people who want to live in paradise and make a difference during their holiday. Help the sharks and the community of Gili Air by giving your time and love. You don’t need to be a shark expert or a diver to join our project, however a passion and commitment to shark conservation is important. We appreciate all the unique skills that you can bring to our project and welcome people of every corner of the globe. Click here to directly apply for a spot in our research team.
