Here at CICI through our partnership with The Coral Islands, pride ourselves on our collaborations with individual researchers, research organisations, educational bodies, universities, government bodies and other conservation organisations. It is our aim to help facilitate whatever your research needs. Maybe, from working with turtles, to surveying reefs, socioeconomic studies, cultural or tourism studies, we can help provide the base for your research needs. 

We are hosts to Master and PhD students and assist in the logistics and running of their field work, and technical information on site data collection. These research projects can be developed in line with any one of our projects and we are happy to offer support and guidance to students alongside their universities. If a student chooses to do their research project with us they are assigned a CICI staff member to act as their external supervisor in line with their universities guidelines, for the duration of their project. 

In return we share data and provide the location and facilities for research, conservation and educational opportunities in line with our causes.
