About Coastal Impact

Coastal Impact is a non-governmental organisation based out of Goa, India. We aim to study & monitor our marine ecosystems, support awareness, outreach, research and conservation actions, and also help build interest and engagement amongst local communities and visitors, about the extraordinary oceanic ecosystems of India. We have a sister concern Barracuda Diving -, and we offer scuba diving programs, which are also useful for volunteers who would like to participate in our underwater surveys and projects. It is also a good skill to build for those who have an interest in marine ecosystems and would like to explore and understand them better.
