Due to huge amount of eggs a lion fish can lay, I felt as though every fish caught makes a dent in their impact. The people I met on the program helped me grow as a person and gain perspectives. I met the most amazing people, both the volunteers and the local staff, and learned so much about conservation and lots more. The dives were always amazing. Couldn’t recommend enough!

What recent volunteers said about their IVHQ experience
I gained independence and a great experience. It was a one-of-a-kind volunteer program and I am so glad I participated in it.
I loved interacting with the local team, making great personal and professional connections, and making great friends to travel with in the future. Take the leap and do it! I promise you there will be more positive outcomes than you can think of. This was my first solo trip, and it exceeded my expectations. Now I feel more comfortable and confident with traveling by myself and experiencing other countries/cultures in the future. I highly recommend IVHQ.
I loved learning how the volunteering I was doing was actually helping the community. This opportunity has truly made me aware that this is a career that I want to pursue. I would encourage future volunteers to do it! The experience will push you out of your comfort zone and you will meet many amazing, like-minded people. It will be an experience like no other.
I felt like I was making a difference and it made me want to travel to other places. It changed my life!
If you are doubting on whether to go or not, do it! Belize is a beautiful and mysterious place full of beautiful people and magical places. The program itself is something you´ll never forget! Every single moment on the program I felt like I was helping and I felt surrounded by people full of love. When I arrived on the island for the first time, it felt like a giant hug, like I was supposed to be there. Being on the program opens opportunities and will help you to learn about yourself.
