Win reef trip, stay for the science
A free place on an expedition to dive and observe coral reefs in the Maldives or Oman is the prize in another competition organised by the Marine Conservation Society (MCS) and Biosphere Expeditions, in partnership with Reef Check.
“The winner will have to be prepared to muck in on a hands-on conservation project, not a luxury dive holiday,” warns the MCS.
Applicants, who must be qualified at least as PADI Open Water Divers or equivalent, have to submit a 100-word short essay or a one-minute video outlining why they should be the winner.

A similar competition held last year by the same environmental organisations was said to have attracted several hundred entrants.
“I’ve learnt so much and could not be happier with the expedition,” said winner Kelsea K. “You come for the holiday and you stay for the science. It was amazing.”
“Our partnership with Biosphere and Reef Check is now in its seventh year and, with them, we have helped significantly enhance reef conservation and understanding among local communities in Musandam and the Maldives,” says Nicola Greaves, Head of Marketing at MCS.
