Job Vacancies in the Maldives

The Organization
The Olive Ridley Project (ORP) is dedicated to removing and reducing the number of derelict fishing nets in the Indian Ocean and to protecting vulnerable marine turtles that fall victim to this ghost gear and habitat destruction. We achieve this by training volunteers to remove derelict fishing gear, safely rescue trapped animals, and record important information about the gear and animals entangled in it.

Furthermore we conduct research using Photo-ID methods to look at population stability, nesting activity and spatial distribution nationwide in the Maldives. We have one of the largest turtle-ID databases in the world with just over 15,000 observations and work with an international team of experts to better develop the method.
