We are always looking for people with a passion for the ocean that want to make a difference in this world. To apply for our program you need to be minimum 18 years old. The good thing is that no previous experience or qualifications are necessary but we do require that you are reasonably fit to cope with tasks on land in the tropical heat and the lifting of dive tanks. If you would like to do your PADI Open Water Course as part of our program you need to be able swim 200 meter with mask, snorkel and fins. It is important to us that you speak (basic) English and that you have a similar ideology to the mission of the Gili Shark Conservation Project. We expect from you to be respectful and open minded to the cultural differences that you might encounter during your stay.
