The Bottlenose Dolphin Volunteer Project is a long-term study on the ecology and conservation of bottlenose dolphins in the area surrounding Cres and Lošinj islands, in Croatia. Volunteers take part in researching dolphins from a land based research centre with daily boat trips, or aboard a Research Vessel for 12 days out at sea.
Volunteers are welcome to come and join the research teams from May to the end of September every year.
Volunteers spend 12 days at the field base in Lošinj or onboard a Research Vessel, and actively participate in the daily routine. This includes: collecting data at sea; preparing boats and equipment; logging data into the computer; preliminary data analysis; and preparing lecture materials and background reading. In addition to this volunteers are expected to help with the maintenance and running of the field base.
The cost of the project is £705 to £810 (full time students are eligible for a discount), and this includes accommodation (a shared house with researchers), meals, personal insurance, fieldwork expenses etc. Volunteers should be over 18 years old, able to speak English and in good physical condition (plus able to swim). More information on the volunteer opportunities and an application form can be found on the website.
