Our Project

 

RECENT NEWS: Unfortunately we have had to close the volunteering aspect of Shallow Waters from late September 2014, although we are still working with the local community in order to continue the community conservation work. Please keep in touch via our Facebook and Twitter pages for future developments!

TEAM_2013_2014Shallow Waters is a marine conservation social enterprise working toward a community led coral reef management programme on the beautiful Koh Sdach island located off Cambodia’s south west coast.

From 2012 – 2014 we offered marine conservation programmes and research internships to international volunteers and students, in order to fund and execute the research project. We have worked alongside resident fisherman, academics from the Royal University of Phnom Penh, local and international NGO’s, and the Cambodian Fisheries Administration, to begin the development of a marine resource management programme for the Koh Sdach archipelago.

Our research is being funded in part by The Rufford Small Grant Foundation, a charity that provide start-up grants for nature conservation projects in developing countries. Shallow Waters is supported by Anglia Ruskin University and is alumni of the Accelerate programme at the Cambridge Judge Business School.
