Coral Reef Project

Coral Reef Project

EilatIsrael (Asia)

Program description

Out of the 11 kilometers of Eilat beach that is located within Israeli territory, 1,200 meters have been declared a nature reserve. The Coral Beach Reserve was one of the first nature reserves to be declared in Israel.

The Coral Beach Nature Reserve offers a spectacular combination of coral; creating colorful underwater ‘gardens’ with butterfly fish, parrot fish, Julie fish, nocturnal fish and many other species, including sea lilies, giant shells and much more. It is one of the most densely populated’ coral reefs in the world and the only one in Israel.

You will become an integral part of the staff that aims to protect this fragile Coral Reef Reserve from countless threats. The work you will do is heavily dependent on which season it is in the country. During the high season (summer) much of your work will center around preparing the beach for tourists. It is of the utmost importance that the beach area remains trash-free so that floating debris does not disturb the ecosystem.

Duties include:

  • General maintenance
  • Beach cleaning
  • Beach observations
  • Informing visitors about the beach rules (swimming areas, use of snorkeling gear, etc.)
  • Water buoy maintenance
  • Assisting park rangers

In order to be a part of this project, you must be a great swimmer in good physical fitness. A huge amount of the work being done is in the water and you will need to be able to cope with tides, waves and currents, although usually they are not strong. You should also be able and willing to endure the hot climate of Israel!
