Unfortunately due to restrictions on international travel and quarantine procedures on arrival in Seychelles, opportunities for volunteers are severely restricted. Similarly, staffing restrictions may result in delays in replying to inquiries.
MCSS has encouraged and relied on volunteer support for most of our projects since
our inception. Generally volunteers with MCSS will work on a number of the current
projects; the time of year will dictate the project activities available with the
turtles projects being busiest from from September to May. We do accept younger local
students for work experience programmes and also have a specific volunteer and internship
opportunities on the Cerf Island project.
Please download the intern / volunteer information file for further details, but
in general terms we are happy to accept volunteers with the following attributes:
Preferably over 21 years of age
Good physical fitness
Medically fit. THIS IS ESSENTIAL.
A university degree in a biological subject, and / or good practical skills
Some experience of working in wildlife conservation
