Hi, I'm Constance, I'm studying Biology in France. I came here on Koh Seh to learn more about my futur job, how to protect nature and specifically the ocean.
I've been on the island for more than 2 weeks now and i'm really enjoying every moment with all the MCC team!
MCC is an important project for me. It gives me hope and I'm very happy to be able to help them as much as I can.

Hi my name is Fred. Inspired by growing up around the natural beauty of Yorkshire’s dales, I started my conservation career doing my field guide and tracker licence in South Africa. This furthered my drive to study and protect the natural world and lead to a bachelor’s degree in Zoology from Newcastle University. Wanting to broaden my fieldwork experiences, I spent 6 months in the coastal Ecuadorian forest conducting herpetofauna and raptor monitoring, as well as conducting a camera trap project in Mongolia.
Subsequently, I did a Conservation Science MSc at Imperial College where I was lucky enough to spend two months in Tajikistan using social and ecological research to evaluate forest health. I have come to MCC from MCP (Marine Conservation Philippines!) where I did divemaster and tec courses and taught interns coral reef monitoring methodologies. I came to MCC to focus on seagrass and learn from their resident seagrass expert.
I initially came to MCC for 2 weeks and extended to a month to gain a deeper understanding of the work they do in the archipelago.

G'day! Im Nick from Australia. In my time as a volunteer with MCC I have had the privilege of working on a variety of interesting and important projects including seagrass surveys, fishing effort surveys, dolphin surveys and outreach projects with the local schools and community. It is inspiring to see bright and conscientious people come together and work towards the future of a part of the marine world which has amazing potential but has suffered through much distress. MCC is creating a bright future for the Kep archipelago and anyone interested should consider how they can help!

Hello, I'm Crystal from Singapore. I love the sun, sand and sea, so I am glad to have had the chance to translate this into action with MCC.
Being a 100% city girl, I was really apprehensive before I arrived. But once I got here, I realised what an amazing opportunity this was, learning about MCC's projects, getting my advanced diving certification, and meeting all the awesome people with a passion for the ocean. Thank you MCC, so glad I made it.

Hi! I am Franzi. I am staying as volunteer with MCC to see the practise of marine conservation. As there are many different projects like dolphin surveys, marine harvesting network project and education trainings, I am glad to learn about the different aspects and the involvement of the Cambodian citizens. I am dive instructor and it’s great to see the achievements under water at the reef in front of the island. As a volunteer I get trained in the different fields and can take part in the research, which is great.

Hey, I'm Alice from Suffolk in the U.K. I have just finished my degree in Politics and International Relations and have been saving up to travel since. I've always had a passion for the environment and wanted to come see all the great work MCC do in and around the island. Although I'm here for only three weeks, I've been helping with dolphin and seahorse surveys as well as completing my advanced scuba diving course. It's been a beautiful and fascinating experience seeing the hard and massively valuable work done here

Greetings! My name is Heidi. I'm from the US and work at a marine science lab in Washington State. I decided to come to South East Asia to escape the cold, gain some more dive experience, and see how marine conservation NGOs operate in this part of the world. My time at MCC has been amazing and I've loved getting to know and working with all the passionate people on the island.
