Volunteer with Dolphins in Zanzibar

  • 14Day(s)
  • Trip Code: STZNZDOL

Menai Bay's friendly bottlenose dolphins have become its star attraction, but the glut of tourists in boats can stress them out. You'll help monitor behaviour, tourist numbers and coral reefs; research that will inform government policies on regulating tourist-dolphin interaction and support and protect Zanzibar's marine ecosystem.
