What Our Volunteers Have To Say About Us
Here are some reviews from our volunteers and interns, Please share your experiences with us.:
Hi I'm Christelle! I'm a french agronomic engineer student specialized in fishing and coastal management. I'm currently doing a gap year before finishing my studies. After doing an internship in research I wanted to get involved in an NGO and be with people who are actually making a difference. I came to Marine Cambodia Conservation because I think this NGO is really doing all it can to improve the current situation and help the local communities. I also hope to gain more knowledge about marine conservation and management, and practice research diving.

Since finishing my degree in Conservation Biology a few years ago I've spent some time working on various marine projects in Northern Cyprus, the Maldives and the Philippines, focusing mainly on sea turtle conservation. After gaining my divemaster last year I was eager to leave behind the UK winter and get back out in the field. I found MCC while searching online and thought it would be a great project to gain more survey skills whilst also getting the chance to learn more about seahorses and help out in the other projects they have going on here.

Hi I’m Courtney and I’m from Australia! I’m currently on university summer break and came to Cambodia to do my part in saving the ocean with the group at MCC, living by the simple philosophy that “‘many hands make light work”.
Although my time here is short, I can’t wait to come back with more time up my sleeve to be part of this special community.

Hi I'm Nevada and I am from Victoria, Canada. Since finishing up my degree in Business and Accounting at the University of Victoria in August 2017, I have left Canada to do some traveling. I knew in my gap year of traveling I wanted to do some kind of marine volunteering, because I personally have an interest in the field of science and conservation. It would also be nice for me to have some work and volunteer experience in a field that I did not exactly study, especially since in my future I would like a career that involves conservation and environmental policy in business. I came across MCC on Google when looking up marine conservation places in Asia and after looking on their website I felt it was an appropriate place for me to volunteer to gain some practical conservation experience and see what the conservation field is like. I feel like my personal attributes of organization, curiosity and detail orientation make me a good fit to help MCC with their conservation work.

Hi, my name is Yseult and I’m 22. I come from Belgium. I’m here to make an internship that fits with my field of studying bio engineering. I chose the MCC organization because I wanted to learn more about environmental conservation and the ocean. Also, I wanted to go to a place where I could test my skills helping an NGO whose values are close to my convictions. I’m going to work on the desalinization project with Zahra because fresh water is rare on the island during dry periods but very useful for everyday life (shower, dishes, ...) I would also like to work on a valorization way of the waste that drifts on the island shores every day.

Hi, my name is Zahra . I'm from Belgium. I'm curently in my fourth year of study in environmental engineering. I'm here to do an internship during 2 month. I chose this place because I wanted have a direct impact on the environment and help to restore and conserve endanger ecosystems. During this internship I have the project to build a system to produce fresh water from salt water.The idea is to use the heat from the incenerator for the desalinisation process. It could be usefull during during dry season. I'm really impatient to work and live a knowledges exchange.

My name is Manon, I am from Switzerland. I am 19 and have just finished my studies so it was the perfect time go traveling. I wanted to do some volunteering work and discover a new culture. When I found MCC website I thought it could be a perfect opportunity to help in a practical way and to learn more about marine conservation. I chose to stay here for one month. Maybe this is a too short period because there are a lot of projects in the island where help is needed. I will do the Advanced open water dive during my stay to be more able to help in the water.

Hi, I'm Talia Wong ! I'm 22 years old. I come from the little, sunny island of Singapore and I'm majoring in Geography. I'll be here for a 2-months internship. I decided to come to Marine Conservation Cambodia as I really wanted to know and be involved in the marine environment and make full use of my summer break instead of taking up random café and events job. I'm interested in working in South-East Asia countries where lesser attention is paid. Also, while I love the ocean immensely, something about its depth scares me too, so I want to learn how to dive and actually try to overcome this fear

Hi, my name is Miriam, I am a 25 year old student from Perth, Australia. I came to Koh Seh to gain practical experience for the final year of my marine science degree.
I only stayed for a very short time. During my time with MCC, I was put in charge of making a seagrass herbarium, we made concrete blocks for an underwater navigation park, collected over 100kg of rubbish from the beach and had night swims with bioluminescent plankton.
It has been such an amazing experience being a part of a passionate marine conservation family.

Hi my names Max Duckworth. I’m a 19 year old. Marine Biology student from the university of Technology, Sydney.
I chose to come to Koh Seh on a month long volunteer program to better understand Marine Conservation in Southeast Asia, while also pursuing my passion of diving. This beautiful part of the world is helping me to learn and further my understanding of the marine environment.
