Dette program tilbydes i samarbejde med organisationen GVI og nedenfor kan du læse deres beskrivelse af programmet:


Akumal is a unique location, not only because it represents an optimal feeding, nesting and breeding habitat for marine turtles but also because it contains a high diversity of natural environments, such as the jungle, the wetlands, the coastal dunes, mangroves, cenotes, inlets, sea grass meadows and coral reefs.

These environments hold rich biological communities with different conservation levels, offering several types of ecosystem-based values and services like the ecological, geological, economic, recreational, commercial, historic, educational, aesthetical, cultural and for research. This wide array of assets gives this area a great importance at a national context.

Just like in a great part of the Mexican Caribbean, Akumal has received the impact of climate change and human activities, mainly the exponential tourism growth. Nowadays, one of the main challenges for biodiversity and habitat conservation is the need to promote the rational use and exploitation of the coastal zones avoiding major affectations.

The type of projects that volunteers could be involved in are:
• Coral communities monitoring,
• Coral restoration,
• Non-take fishing area assessment,
• Sea grass monitoring,
• Community work and environmental education among others

Volunteers will be allocated to a particular focus dependent on the duration of their program.
