Summary

Help to protect threatened whale and dolphin populations and gain invaluable conservation experience as you volunteer on the stunning island of Tenerife. The largest and most bio-diverse of the seven Canary Islands, Tenerife is one of the world’s best whale and dolphin watching destinations with its south-west coast providing a home to communities of these majestic and captivating cetaceans all year round. You’ll help to complete visual surveys three to five times a week, going out on boats to undertake crucial observation work. You will also act as a guide for tourists on whale-watching excursions, where you will use the knowledge you’ve gained to educate and inform them about the whale and dolphin populations they might spot, as well as other migratory species such as killer or blue whales.

You’re sure to have a ‘whale’ of a time on the Island, which boasts sandy beaches, two world heritage sites and a volcano (no big deal). Explore quaint Renaissance towns, old churches and medieval castles, or take some salsa or windsurfing lessons. There is also some fantastic scuba-diving to be done on the island as well as plenty of beautiful natural landscapes to see, some of which you might recognise from films such as Clash of the Titans and Star Wars. The force 'whale' be with you, always.

What We Love

  • Contribute to Conservation: Photos you take of whales and dolphins will help researchers to understand how the cetaceans interact with each other and, crucially, help to assess population growth. You’ll make a valuable contribution and gain practical marine conservation experience.

  • Whale-watching Guide: Once your initial training is completed you will be able to pass on information to whale-watching tourists. Help others to spot the resident whales and dolphins, and share knowledge so that the conservation ‘word’ spreads worldwide.

  • Mount Teide National Park: Visit Spain’s highest mountain, which also happens to be a volcano. The volcanic crater out of which the mountain rises is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, with lava and rock formations making it seem like you’re walking on the moon!
