Located in the town of O Grove, volunteers and interns will have the opportunity to contribute to bottlenose dolphin, whale & porpoise conservation whilst gaining hands on field and laboratory experience. You will gain an insight into dolphin research, learn about different research instruments and techniques, learn about bottlenose dolphins and gain awareness about their conservation.
We have places for Volunteers and Interns to join for 1 or more weeks.
Individuals, groups and students doing research all welcome.
Dolphin research volunteers in Spain will assist with data collection while on board the research boat, help to locate and keep track of dolphin groups and collect environmental information. Back in the lab, volunteers will assist with restocking field supplies and transcribing data sheets. Boat cleaning and maintenance will also sometimes be required. Volunteers can join for a minimum of 1 week.
Dolphin research Interns will work alongside the chief biologist and other experienced researchers in order to collect bottlenose dolphin data. Working with a mentor, interns will gain field and laboratory experience using various scientific methods. Whilst in the lab, interns will assist with the transcription of collected data, perform photo-identification analysis, use various software, maintain the vessel and more. Internships can be used for academic or vocational purposes and require a minimum stay of 60 days.
