Become a marine conservation volunteer and participate in dolphin research in the Ionian Sea, helping to provide a marine environment that provides long-term viability for the species. The research focuses on the Bottlenose Dolphin and the Short-Beaked Common Dolphin, in the Amvrakikos Gulf and the Inner Ionian Sea archipelago.
This is an amazing chance for marine conservation volunteers to take part in Bottlenose and Short-Beaked Common Dolphins research in the Ionian Sea.
Volunteers can take part in activities such as; photo-identification, recording behaviour and sizes, collection of data regarding other marine species and assessment of how dolphins interact with local fisheries.
Dolphin research volunteers will be working alongside the project researchers on a daily basis, and upon sighting a dolphin volunteers will be expected to log angle and distance from the boat, as well as recording the size and spatial distribution of the dolphins (assuming there is a group).
We have places for Cetacean Volunteer Researchers to join for one or more weeks from April to September every year.
