Voluntariado: Croacia!

Dear Students,

We still have some volunteer places available over the summer at the Adriatic Dolphin Project in Croatia. The Adriatic Dolphin Project (ADP) is the longest ongoing study of a resident population of common bottlenose dolphins in the Mediterranean Area. It is run by the Blue World Institute of Marine Research and Conservation (Blue World), a Non Governmental Organisation, formed to carry out scientific research, conservation and awareness of the marine environment with particular emphasis on the Adriatic and Mediterranean seas.

Volunteers spend 12 days living and working with the research staff of the ADP in Veli Loŝinj, Croatia. During this time you can expect to participate in boat-based dolphin surveys (sea conditions permitting) including acoustical, behavioural, navigational and photo ID data collection. You will receive training on dolphin survey techniques, basic data analysis of behavioural, acoustical and navigational data.

There cost of two weeks is €820-890 (€740-€810 for students) depending on the time of year, which includes fuel for the boat, food, accommodation in the ADP house, research supervision, training and Blue World membership. It does not include travel to Croatia or to Veli Loŝinj.
You should be able to speak English and be at least 18 years old to take part.

For more information please contact andrea.boric@blue-world.org and see our website at www.blue-world.org (click the Conservation & Education link).

Yours faithfully,

Andrea Boric.
