GVI is currently recruiting for the Marine Research Field Staff vacancy based at our expedition in southern Kenya where we have been undertaking population research on Indo-Pacific bottlenose dolphins and Indo-Pacific humpback dolphins in and around the Kisite-Mpunguti Marine Protected Area since 2006. The area is Kenya’s principal location for dolphin-watching tourism throughout the year and is visited by humpback whales between July and October.
GVI works in collaboration with Kenya Wildlife Service to monitor population size and distribution of cetaceans with the objective of supporting MPA management and related tourism activities. Additional projects assess in-water sea turtle distribution and local fishing activity. The position involves boat-based research for which RYA Powerboat handling level 2 or equivalent qualification is a requirement, management of the photo-identification catalogue, data analysis and reporting, training and supervision of international volunteers and Kenyan students, logistic and management support of the wider expedition which encompasses coastal forest research, education and sustainable development initiatives amongst rural communities.
