Sails up!
Research Schooner

Come Aboard as a "Conservation Pirate."
It's "For the Birds"! 


Conservian and our Coastal Bird Conservation program comprise an innovative 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to conservation and restoration of coastal bird populations and habitats.  
We invite you to join us for one of our annual Bahamas conservation live-aboard expeditions.  Aboard our 75+ foot research schooner, we'll ply the azure waters once sailed by Blackbeard and Calico Jack.

Ashore on white-sand beaches, we'll work with Conservian experts and Bahamian volunteers to collect new valuable data, protect threatened shorebirds, and restore coastal habitats.  Daily leisure time will bring opportunities for swimming, snorkeling, and exploring local sites. 
Each week in May, we offer a one-week volunteer vacation in a different area of the Bahamas. Explore  our website to learn more. Contact us for additional information, or apply now. Help the environment while enjoying a Caribbean "adventure of a lifetime."  .
Watch our brief video about our Bahamas conservation expedition.
