Volunteer programme

Ocean Odyssey has embarked on two volunteer programmes with Edge of Africa and Travellers Worldwide to encourage volunteers with an interest in the environment & marine life to come experience Knysna and the spectacular marine life to be found here.

Edge of Africa

Edge_of_Africa

Edge of Africa is an award winning local volunteer project coordinator for gap year placements, work experience and volunteer internships in Africa. They run various volunteer programs right here in Knysna.

 

The Dolphin and Whale Research initiative will bring volunteer students to Knysna where they will assist with the research and conservation project. Duties will include compilation of data, based on sightings and species, building a photographic database which will allow us to identify individuals based on unique markings on fins and assist on-board the vessels as guides.

 

The volunteers will also assist with our educational programmes, visiting local schools to talk about the importance of the health of our Estuary, coastline and the environment.
