Coral Cay Conservation is an award-winning, not-for-profit organisation that specialises in tropical marine conservation, community education and capacity building projects in developing countries.
Founded in 1986, Coral Cay has pioneered a citizen science approach to conservation, training volunteers to survey coastal ecosystems in order to help local communities set up effective conservation measures such as Marine Protected Areas.
Imagine diving with Whale Sharks and coral reefs teaming with life, living within a small island community untouched by tourism and working closely within a team of staff and volunteers.
