Volunteers make a very valuable contribution to the work of SIF and we have a very limited number of volunteer opportunities at both sites and in the Mahé Head Office, which are highly competitive. 

The types of position available change regularly according to project needs but usually a strong scientific, technical or education and outreach background is considered essential.  We also expect applicants to be mature, dedicated, prepared to work hard and have experience of the outdoors and especially living and working in remote places. 

Applicants must be willing to commit to at least six months of full-time unpaid work.  Please note that volunteers are expected to cover all of the costs of their stay except accommodation, which SIF will provide.
