We recently came across the Wise Work job board and knew we had to share the news with ReefDivers. After clicking through a few of the current opportunities, our first impression was to promptly spend hours daydreaming about a daily barefoot commute.
Wise Work is a leading resource in marine conservation jobs, volunteering opportunities, courses, and research expeditions around the globe. The Wise Work job board has five individual sections: Paid Jobs, Volunteer/Internships, Courses, Academic Positions and Marine Research Expeditions, each with their own unique offerings.
If you are looking for a career in marine conservation or interested in gaining experience through internships or volunteering, you’re gonna wanna sign up to their weekly job alert email list and stay in the loop. New jobs are always popping up, so stay up-to-date by subscribing to job alert emails following Wise Oceans on Facebook and Twitter.
We found the Marine Research Expedition section to be especially informative for narrowing down and comparing various marine conservation expeditions. Different organizations will appeal to different people and it is important to do your research before choosing the adventure that is right for you.
Conservation expeditions are a great way to get involved in marine conservation and make a positive difference around the world.
Wise Work writes, “whether it’s a career break, a gap year before university or work, furthering your studies or just a break in your travels to do something different, volunteering with a Marine Research Expedition is an experience you’ll carry with you for the rest of your life.”
Wise Work is the dedicated job board for the UK based company WiseOceans, who specialize in Marine Education and Conservation. Aside from the Wise Work job board, the WiseOceans website has marine conservation advice, news ,and information including a ‘SeaSense’ page with informative links about the oceans most recognizable and charismatic creatures.
