It was amazing!

I have been studying conservation for the last few years and this is my first time being able to do something abroad with it. Being able to see the Bottlenose Dolphins and the Pilot Whales in their natural environment and not being forced to do tricks like most captive one are, has been truly an unforgettable experience. In my two weeks here, I was able to go on seven boat surveys, which was truly incredible. It was great being able to talk to the staff their experiences here and what they were doing before this and where they want to go afterwards.

The community involvement was quite lackluster due to them being unable to get the correct permits at the time I was there. But, nevertheless the beach cleaning we did in place of that was just as important and really highlights how necessary it is.

The accommodation itself is quite large, with many different bedrooms of four. If you arrive on the same day then you get put in a room together, which helps you bond quickly since you're all in the same situation. Everyone that was here during my stay was so easy to get on with and very easy to talk to.

If I could I would truly never leave, being on those boat surveys was amazing.

Great Experience

I really enjoyed my week stay in Tenerife , going out on the boats and being able to see the dolphins and whales is an experience i won't forget and being able to contribute to research data.The house has a really nice chilled out atmosphere and you get to explore the beautiful island in your spare time off the project. Overall, it has been a really good trip and want to thank the staff for making it a enjoyable experience.

Belize Marine life and Diving

Excellent time! Learned local fishes and corals, spent time with an interesting and diverse group of people. Enjoyed highs and lows, and learned a lot from the experience. It involved, both free diving and scuba diving, getting to know different sites, learning manatees and enjoying lectures turtles, mangroves, sea grass, local people, climate and much more. Frontier's base is unlike any other I have stayed in before - basic but sufficient amenities and wonderful real, non-decorative nature. I will be strange waking up without local roosters morning croaks!

My trip to Madagascar

Best aspects are location and excellent people with good links to the locals. I’ve enjoyed taking trips to other islands at the weekend and going on a few forest walks as well as taking part in the marine project. The information pre-project would be better if it was a bit more concise and all in one place.

Amazing

I had a lot of fun during this project, and made a lot new friends during my stay. Most activities like going on the boats were amazing, however in my opinion the Coastal and Community could be a little bit longer since we had a lot of spare time after that.
