Dolphin research volunteers can take part in a bottlenose dolphin research project from the base in Losinj from May to September every year. The research focuses on dolphin population dynamics, photo – identification, behavioural sampling and acoustic monitoring.
The 2 weeks I spent on the project were absolutely amazing and an experience that I will never forget. Everything was perfect: the group of volunteers, the organisation of the day-to- day activities, the days spent on or off the sea, and of course, our encounters with the dolphins!
Watch this video to see what life is like as a volunteer at our Bottlenose Dolphin research project in Losinj and meet the lovely staff and volunteers who are passionate about their work!
Work alongside marine biologists in the crystal clear waters of the Adriatic Sea researching and monitoring bottlenose dolphins and taking part in collecting essential data and photo IDs of the dolphins. Experience the warmth of the Croatian people and spend your free time exploring the beaches and charm of Veli Losinj.
Croatia has an amazing 5,835km of coastline, 4,057km of which belongs to islands, cliffs and reefs. The islands are home to glistening sea winds around rocky coves, lapping at pine-fringed beaches. The marine environment around Lošinj where the project is based, is the cleanest part of the Northern Adriatic Sea.
In your free time, you can explore the town and small cafes if you want to taste Croatian dishes, or head off to beaches or secluded coves for swimming, snorkelling, sunbathing or simply relaxing. You can rent bicycles to cycle around the island too.
