Dolphin Research Project, Greece

This is an amazing opportunity for marine conservation volunteers to research Bottlenose and Short-Beaked Common Dolphins in the Ionian Sea.

Volunteers can take part in; photo-identification, recording dolphin behaviour and sizes, collecting data regarding other marine species and studying how dolphins interact with local fisheries.

Dolphin research volunteers will be working alongside experienced project researchers on a daily basis. Upon sighting a dolphin, volunteers will be expected to log the angle and distance from the boat, as well as record 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.
