    The Coral Sea Foundation & the Conflict Island Conservation Initiative is offering an exclusive chance to not only support the Sea Women of Melanesia Program, but explore & see firsthand the conservation programs in place in this remote region of Papua New Guinea.

    The Sea Women of Melanesia Program brings women from the local communities around Milne Bay, Papua New Guinea & empowers them to be custodians of their local coral reef environments.

    They will be first taught how to dive, skills to conduct marine surveys and underwater identification techniques. The other important part of the program is how they can identify which reefs need protection, how they can bring that message to the community and how to portray the message to the elders, that protection and sustainability of the marine environment will ensure the survival of the community but also the survival of the amazing coral reefs they have. These areas are very remote and the communities really on the marine world for substance.

    Stay at the Conflict Islands Resort in a twin – share waterfront bungalow, all meals, and up to three dives per day with all equipment (if needed).

    The program runs from 30 August to the 13 September 2019 & has limited spots.

    This is an amazing opportunity to not only see conservation, but experience amazing coral reefs, abundant fish life, overall great diving, all in the knowledge you are supporting the future of these marine areas.
