Among those needed are are crew members who can sail and dive, a Skipper, a Marine Biologist.

The yachts will be heading out from New Zealand into the Pacific during May to undertake a variety of marine conservation projects and humanitarian aid work in Tonga, Vanuatu and Papua New Guinea.

Magic Roundabout, a Sweden 34, will leave at the beginning of May for Vanuatu where the team will be assisting the Fisheries Dept with various projects, as well as conducting Reef Check surveys. After Vanuatu Magic Roundabout will head for Papua New Guinea where the crew will be working with the PNG Institute for Sustainable Marine Resources on marine conservation issues and also helping the people of Karkar Island. Skipper is OceansWatch founder Chris Bone.

For Magic Roundabout OceansWatch needs –

An experienced skipper from ~25th June until August 10th – as a replacement for Chris Bone. They need to have reasonable diving experience, an interest in the environment and be sympathetic to the ideals of OceansWatch.

A crew member with a Marine Biology degree who is an experienced diver, preferably with Reef Check accreditation, (Reef Check trainer would be even better) from Aug 1st to the end of season in November. This opportunity may suit an intern looking to gain experience working with an NGO in the Pacific Islands.

A crew member from about July 1 to end of season - November. Must be a Divemaster to take responsibility for all marine survey diving, prefer Reef Check accredited, but we can train if necessary.


Amadis, a 12m cutter owned by OceansWatch Trustee, Lily Kozmian-Leward, will sail from New Zealand towards the end of May to the Kingdom of Tonga where she will be working with the local Fisheries Dept as well as undertaking Reef Check surveys and working on whale identification. Lily is an experienced Marine Biologist who originally sailed from England in 2005 conducting coral reef conservation and monitoring surveys en route.
