This is the second installment of our feature about organizations that offer divers of all ages opportunities to volunteer for conservation efforts in the U.S. or abroad.

Volunteering will cost you money because not only will you pay to get there, you'll most likely pay for housing and food, and maybe even diving. That said, many groups offering such programs are IRS-approved 501 (c)(3) organizations, so some or all of your expenses may be tax-deductible. But more important, you'll be contributing back to the underwater world that we love and that needs our attention.

Here are some organizations to consider.

Volunteer Activities

Reef Environmental Education Foundation (REEF), founded by Paul Humann and Ned DeLoach, is an international organization active in conservation education and marine research. Their Ocean Explorers Expeditions are custom-designed for individual groups. Individuals can register for the REEF field fish survey trips. They offer over 30 a year to various locations, both liveaboard trips and resort-based. Their website offers useful information and supplies to help you conduct surveys wherever you dive.
