Volunteering Marine Health Education

The Floating Foundation is a New Zealand-based organisation that operates a mobile floating research facility in the South Pacific ocean. Utilising our mobile base, we conduct programs in relief of poverty with health education and medical supplies. The Floating Foundation also conducts and supports research work in an environmental and marine sciences.

During our 2017 Expedition we'll be visiting the Vava'u island group of Tonga, visiting 10 remote villages to teach island medics basic medical and health skills. Concurrently, from our donated 120 ft yacht, we'll be assisting scientific research into marine environments.

Volunteers from New Zealand, Australia, and around the world will be on board helping researchers and visiting island communities. Volunteers will be trained by us to conduct medical outreach, and to collect data for researchers.
