The sheer size, amazing natural wealth, awesome scenery and huge variety of plant and animal life make Australia an essential destination for anyone with a passion for nature and wildlife.
Your project is based at a non-profit Centre committed todolphin research, education, conservation and tourismbased in the South West Coast of Australia. The Centre enables people to interact with Bottlenose dolphins in a variety of ways. There are up to 100 dolphins living in the Bay and groups of them regularly visit the shallow waters in front of the Centre.
Being a volunteer at the Centre can be a wonderful experience, you meet people from all around the world, not to mention the dolphins! However, your time as a volunteer will involve a lot more than being in the water with the dolphins. Talking and answering questions is a very important part of your role. Eighty percent of your day will involve talking to people who come down to the beach to see the dolphins, thus educating them about their characteristics and making them aware of how crucial it is to conserve these wonderful animals.
Here are some of the tasks you may be involved with:
Talking to visitors on the beach - explaining what the Dolphin Centre does.
Assisting to coordinate the Interaction Zone when dolphins visit.
Managing the front entrance and Dolphin Room area.
Participating in ’’Coastcare” activities and assist with current research projects.
