2 Week Research Program
Conservation Adventure Mozambique

Love the Oceans is a non-profit marine conservation organisation working in Jangamo Bay, Mozambique. Love The Oceans is working to protect and study the diverse marine life found here, including many species of sharks, rays and the famous humpback whales. We use research, education and diving to drive action towards a more sustainable future. Our ultimate goal is to establish a Marine Protected Area for the Inhambane Province in Mozambique, achieving higher biodiversity whilst protecting endangered species.

We offer a cutting edge, ethically sound, marine conservation program that gives individuals the chance to work along side our marine biologists and the local community, helping with conservation and receiving training, through research, education and diving over a 2 – 6 week period.

Love The Oceans is partnered with many universities around the world, and was recently recognised as 1 of 15 global grassroots #forcesforchange by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and received international recognition for our work.
