Octonauts-FacebookShareJoin MNS Marine Group (Selangor Branch) for its two-parter World Oceans Day celebrations!

We will be conducting a 1-night, 1 morning workshop in Port Dickson, Negeri Sembilan from 12-13th June 2015 for MNS members who wish to volunteer at our annual World Oceans Day event.

You will learn about marine life, fish identification, animal symbiosis, how to conduct a low-tide beach walk, how to carry out a clean coast index study, an underwater clean-up (for divers) and many more exciting activities!

The itinerary looks something like this: On Friday, arrive in Port Dickson in time for dinner, low-tide beach walk (be prepared to stay up late!), overnight at accommodation, continue workshop next morning till lunch time then head back home.

Requirements: you must know how to swim proficiently, be comfortable in the sea, have a desire to share your knowledge of the marine environment with adults and children, and after “graduating” from the workshop, be able to volunteer at least once a year for a MNS marine event/WOD event.
