Sail the Hebridean Sea in Scotland aboard research vessel Silurian and assist with dolphin and whale monitoring activities. Volunteers will collect visual and acoustic data on the various species of cetacean found in the area.
During the expedition you will live-aboard the research yacht Silurian, exploring the Hebrides while collecting visual and acoustic data on the various species of whale, dolphin and porpoise (cetacean) found in the study area. Images will also be collected during encounters for Photo-ID analysis; Photo-ID is a tool used to identify individuals using distinguishable marks on their dorsal fins. 24 species of cetacean – nearly a third of the global total – have been recorded in the Hebrides.
Individuals, groups and students doing research all welcome.
