SCUBA student and research intern

This was an amazing adventure in a beautiful and welcoming, culturally-rich country. I interned for 5 months and obtained my advanced SCUBA open water certificate, living part of the time on a houseboat, made great friends,and overall had a blast. Projects I participated in include: basic water monitoring, underwater biodiversity land transect and grid surveys of Cichlid populations, fishing village catch estimates, data management and collection using excel, and a immersion study of the local culture and language, but the area and resources are flexible enough to accommodate the imagination. If you are ready for some sun, some adventure, and a unique experience for all ages then this is for you.
