Marine Action Research at the Zavora Marine Lab was established to promote and facilitate research and conservation in southern Mozambique. Since its inception the lab has developed vital research for the region and raised environmental awareness through educational programs with local communities and visitors to the area. We have also made fantastic progress towards the understanding of our marine environment, including discovering new species and range extensions of known species.
Our projects focus on: manta ray populations, population and behaviour of migratory humpback whales, nudibranch diversity and distribution, wreck colonization, seahorse population trends, and reef surveys.
Interns will receive training and participate in all of our projects, experiencing the challenges and the pleasures of working in the most beautiful, wild and remote coastal environment of southern Mozambique. The internship is a great opportunity for dedicated students to engage in real world research and meaningfully contribute to our projects.
