Nasonisoni Island, Fijigreenforce

Would you love to learn to dive and help conserve the coral reefs of a remote South Pacific Island? Where better to spend a year off before college – or take a career break – than in an island off beautiful Fiji. Gap Force Fiji is a ten-week adventure in which you’ll firstly take PADI Open Water, Advance and Emergency First Response dive qualifications. You’ll then be able to help the Wildlife Conservation Society in their aim to protecting the marine environment. Live like the locals and have plenty of time to enjoy recreational dives. greenforce

Gapforce is an organisation that specialises in expeditions and programmes to remote destinations around the world.

Gapforce has a combination of projects, many of which have a hands-on approach to aiding local communities. Through the conservation volunteering options and other gap ventures, Gapforce hopes to establish itself as a leading provider for enjoyable and rewarding adventures worldwide. The conglomeration of ‘Forces’ signifies the diverse options available to enthusiastic travellers. Go skiing in Canada, gain medical experience in India, work in Australia, trek through the Belizean jungle, complete conservation work in Fiji or go on a specialised mature expedition to Ecuador. Every region of the earth is covered with one of our Forces.

Wherever your heart desires, Gapforce will be there as your trusted name in travel. For 20 years, we have been providing innovative and unique projects. Greenforce has created UNESCO heritage sites in Fiji and works extensively with WWF and the Red Cross in South America. They were also in charge of the Maasai Marathon in April 2008, which proved a great success. Trekforce has used their expertise to become the first non-Belizean organisation to become an NGO and be given a portion of their rainforest to sustain. They have also established relationships with the governments in Papua New Guinea and Borneo. Ozforce has remained a popular choice for participants looking to raise money and our range of jobs in Australia sets us apart, with choices from agriculture to hospitality, teaching to construction. Medforce and Skiforce are exciting new ventures that combine our previous knowledge with some of the best programmes around the world. They are already gaining a solid reputation in the gap year and travel industry.

Using our non-profit status and close ties with the Year Out Group and the Foreign Commonwealth Office, Gapforce has become a pioneer in the industry, leading the way with profound vision. The safe and rewarding expeditions have no boundaries. They appeal to all ages, nationalities and religions. Join us as we cross rivers, climb mountains, traverse through jungles, dive into crystal seas, immerse ourselves in cultural history, construct pivotal infrastructure, save wildlife, meet great new friends and have the time of your life.

    Today the CITES management of those 7 new species goes live! This is truly a great milestone in Shark conservation. Projects Abroad have been all over it, and celebrated this momentous occasion with a day of awareness, research and education. Well done! And the implementation in Fiji? It's gonna happen - but in the Fijian way. More in a subsequent post!
  • Only Bycatch - Two!
    Turns out that the Tuna longliners have been, gasp, lying! You don't say! Did it really take a "study" to confirm what had been obvious all along and what we here in Fiji had known for years? Anyway. Good that now, it is out in the open - and good that the FFA wants to bring it up and have it banned at the next WCPFC meeting. There will undoubtedly be the usual dirty politics and
  • Scarface and Rusi!
    Terry-fic pic by Terry Goss.   No don't get too excited. This is footage from 2010. We haven't seen Scarface in years and although a very experienced videographer on rebreather reports seeing an enormous Tiger Shark, I fear that she has become the victim of all those pelagic long lines out there.
