This is your chance to join a unique citizen science SCUBA diving coral reef conservation expedition.
In partnership with Reef Check and the Marine Conservation Society, Biosphere Expeditions is offering a free place on either its expedition to Musandam (Oman) or the Maldives. And there’s more: in addition to the expedition prize, there are other prizes from Reef Check and the Marine Conservation Society to be won.
You have to be a qualified diver (minimum PADI Open Water or equivalent). You also have to be prepared to muck in on a hands-on conservation project, not a luxury dive holiday. If this is you, then tell Biosphere Expeditions who you are, why they should take you on and what you think you can contribute to the diving expedition.
Main prize: participate in a Reef Check expedition of your choice
The winner can select freely from Biosphere Expeditions’ reef diving expeditions to Musandam (Oman) or the Maldives. The selection has to be made within 15 months of winning the prize.
Consolation prize: Reef Check pack
Consisting of T-shirt, hat and beach towel.
Consolation prize: Marine Conservation Society pack
Consisting of shirt from their clothing range and membership of the MCS for one year.
How to Apply
You have two options of putting in an application. Either send an essay (max. 100 words) or a video clip (max. 1 minute), which you can easily create yourself (for example using the movie setting of your digital camera) and upload to a video sharing site (for example YouTube). Whichever option you go for, Biosphere Expeditions would like to know from you who you are, why they should take you on and what you think you can contribute to the expedition.
Note that Biosphere Expeditions organises serious research & conservation expeditions, not luxury or sports or party holidays. With this in mind, the competitions are no “Pop Idol”-style castings events where you need to sing, dress up or otherwise make a fool out of yourself. Biosphere Expeditions would like to get to know you as much as possible within the above remit, so just be yourself!
