Anyone who is coming or thinking about coming on the Madagascar project, I highly recommend visiting Nosy Iranja.
It was a Friday morning on camp; the rest of the mariners had gone to an island called Tanikely for a dive and the foresters had gone on their morning walk. It was high tide and I decided to get some practice in for my 400 meter timed swim for my Divemaster Internship.
Who would have thought counting fish would be so interesting? Our Volunteer reflects on his time in Madasgascar
'Hello, my name is Charlotte. I'm an Emergency First Responder, may I help you?'- a phrase that has haunted me from one of the courses I've completed in my ten weeks in Madagascar as a mariner. So far I'm on week nine and it's crazy that it's so close to being over.
"To be honest, no picture nor blog could even come close to doing any of this experience justice, you just have to be there! The island has so much spirit and energy that just makes it the most unique place on earth."
