Marine Conservation Program

Our program

With all the overseas volunteering and service learning trips that is all the rage for schools, institutions and companies right now, The Dorsal Effect believes in a complete chain process providing a complete experience that considers every aspect of the trip itself rather than a narrow one, in order to maintain a responsible and ethical responsible tourism experience for all. That is why our group sizes are limited strictly to 25 pax maximum, in order not to cause undue stress on the environments we will be going too. Our marine conservation trips aim to empower future advocates who will became multipliers to the cause for shark and marine conservation beyond the trip itself. With built in pre and post trip sessions alongside comprehensive nightly or post activities reflection sessions, we aim to provide a holistic experience for you and your students or employees while making relevant and constructive positive difference to the marine life and local community as well. These are some of the activities that we build into our marine conservation trip programs: - Trash clean up and audit with local communities - Local school interaction and exchange - Field work alongside marine related NGOs - Coral health checks and reef surveys - Interaction with local shark fish fishermen to learn more about their livelihood and alternatives Get in touch with us at info@thedorsaleffect.com to find out more on how we can customise a ViA, CSR and team building or personal group trip for you.

CASE STUDIES

event

The School of Science and Technology Singapore came with The Dorsal Effect for a 5 day marine conservation trip to Lombok where they got to interact with the various NGOs that are doing work on marine conservation, experience first hand the shark hunting situation in Tanjung Luar fish market and worked with Gili Eco Trust to build a biorock for coral reef restoration in the northern part of Lombok island. The students also had a chance to snorkel with the pristine corals just off the fish market and interviewed the converted shark fishermen for their school video project work in their groups. The SST students also visited a local elementary school just by the Tanjung Luar fish market and interacted with them through marine games and simple activities. SST came in 2014 and 2015 and learnt much and well as reflected deeply on the marine ecosystem and the relationship between humans and nature through our nightly reflection sessions with them
