Get experience in sea turtle conservation, data collection, environmental coastal erosion, or a catch-and-release program with Sickle-fin Lemon sharks! Take part in a number of activities while discovering the riches of Seychelles.
GVI Internship programs focus on the development of professional skills while providing a well-rounded conservation experience. Participants are provided with a mentor who will monitor the progress on a weekly basis and be a professional reference after successful completion of the program.
In your free time, join exciting diving or snorkelling excursions, or simply relax on the picturesque beaches.
Curieuse Island and its surrounding waters are a national park, managed by our principal in-country partner, Seychelles National Parks Authority. Our beach-front camp is located on the white sand beach of Anse St Jose and overlooks Praslin (Seychelles’ second largest island), a short boat ride away. As an intern, you’ll cover a wide range of conservation efforts as you rotate between projects, however the majority of your time will be spent on foot working in the forests and on the beaches, experiencing different field techniques and varied project sites. As part of the GVI Leadership course, a lot of focus will be placed on developing your leadership and teamwork skillset. After returning to base from your various field work responsibilities, you will undergo extra training with your mentor. The Leadership course enables you to get more involved by equipping you with the skills to lead teams and supporting logistics. At the end of the internship, you will have the necessary skills, field based experience and certifications to begin a rewarding career in the conservation field of your choice. At the end of each workday, you will return to our base with the rest of your team to relax together, socialise, and catch up on any studying or assignments you have. Camp duties are shared on a rotational basis, and accommodation is basic, shared dormitory style. Embrace it, this is real island living! You should expect to work 5 ½ days each week, Monday to Friday, with weekends free for you to explore the surrounding area, study, snorkel, dive and just enjoy island living.
