Marine Ecology is involved in many different projects and programs in support of, and in the implementation of, eductaional studies and iterns within the Fiji Islands.
Marine Ecology coordinates many University Groups who visit Fiji.
Our marine and cultural programs match the interests, academic goals, and passions of the Academic Institution to select programs and research projects.
International Student Interns
Marine Ecology can facilitate a few self-funded internships every year. These projects normally revolve around biological surveys in village-based marine protected areas using snorkel equipment, and require a high degree of independence, as after training interns work by themselves, in outer islands, living within traditional Fijian village households.
For the right applicants, this can be a rewarding and life-changing experience, but we do prefer interns to be over 21 and, if possible, to come in small groups of 2 or 3 at a time.
Approximate costs depend on selected project site, time spent in Fiji, and current exchange rates, but you should expect around US$/ € 1,500 – 2,000 training and support costs, in-Fiji travel around US$/ € 250 – 300, and food/accommodation costs around US$/ €50 – 60 per day.
