Nicole and Sam are final year Conservation Biology and Ecology students at the University of Exeter; Nicole doing a joint honours course with Geography.

Nicole and Sam are passionate about the marine environment and have decided to volunteer with Greenforce, a successful non-profit NGO (non-governmental organisation) who specialise in biodiversity surveys across the globe.

In October 2010 Nicole and Sam will be travelling to Andros Island, which one of the many islands which makes up the Bahamas. On their trip, they will undertake extensive dive training (PADI open water, advanced open water and emergency first response) in order to carry out twice daily Reef Check surveys and Fish Biodiversity surveys; to help with the creation of Marine Protected Zones. Another part of the expedition includes visiting a local primary school, once a week, to teach the local children about marine life and the importance of maintaining it.

If you think you can help us in any way than let us know.

Many thanks

Nicole and Sam
