Two places on a shark conservation trip to Bahrain have become available this coming April.

The Shark Conservation Society (SCS) is organising the expedition to waters off Bahrain, in the Persian Gulf. It’s a sign of the times that two of the volunteer shark watchers have had to drop out due to being made redundant.

However this could be good news for you and a friend, as it means there are now two spots unfilled on the three-week trip.

To take the place(s) you’ll need to be in Bahrain on April 6th, ready to get stuck in on the 7th, with a project finish date of April 27th.

This is no holiday and expedition members will be undertaking serious conservation work, but it’s an opportunity to help study the planet’s shark population at a time when it is under real threat.

The Bahrain government is subsidising the expedition so costs are limited to an airfare, £275 donation to the SCS and a bit of spending money.

The SCS is run by Richard and Jacqui Peirce, who run a cage diving outfit in Cornwall when they’re not organising overseas expeditions. Richard is also chairman of the Shark Trust.

If you fit the bill and would like to join them in Bahrain in April 2012, give them a call on either 01288 352608 or 07836 606325, or visit the Shark Conservation Society website.
