Sun, sea and...sustainability? 

Airbnb is about to make the countdown until summer much shorter for five lucky people. In collaboration with the Bahamas National Trust, they're offering you the chance to spend two months on The Bahamas' family islands, where you'll help support the islands' natural industries, preserve its rapidly changing ecosystems and help the islands grow their tourism industry. 


You'll take part in an eight week itinerary led by the Bahamas National Trust, which includes restoring coral reefs, supporting ethical fishing and promoting traditional agriculture, to help directly benefit local communities and support a sustainable future for the islands. You'll also work alongside expert scuba instructor, Katie Storr, free diver and fisherman, Andre Musgrove, and master gardener, Leon Levy, who'll teach you the ropes of restoration.

You won't be paid for the sabbatical but Airbnb will cover your flights to The Bahamas, accommodation, your travel whilst on the islands and food. And, of course, when you're not working they'll be plenty of opportunity to enjoy all The Bahamas has to offer, including the unspoilt scenery, white beaches and crystal clear waters. 

To apply, all you need is to be over 18, able to speak conversational English and available between the 1st April and 31st May 2020. You can find the full application form right here which must be submitted by 18th February. 

If you prefer the cold, there's plenty of UK based student and graduates opportunities on our website for you to choose from - check them out right here.
