#Marine and Coral Reef Conservation,#Belize,MExico,#Australia
Marine preservation is essentially the conservation of marine ecosystems and their marine life species. Ocean conservation takes many different forms, from large-scale coral reef conservation efforts to more specific conservation efforts, such as those geared towards sea turtles, dolphins and other specific marine animal species. Other opportunities with unique animals are with helping sharks in Mozambique, great whites in South Africa, dolphins in Croatia, and even manatees in Belize. Tasks in direct animal care include caring for the animals, tracking their behavior and movement and protecting their habitats.

It’s a hiker’s paradise and a photographer’s dream. Along with the peace and quiet of the desert oasis, however, are some of the most unique species of wildlife in the country.
