Once we have confirmed your place, you will receive a pre-departure package with all detailed information on the project, details on the work, suggested items to bring etc.
The dates below are just a guideline and we can be flexible if you want to start/leave on another date than those listed. You can join for a minimum of one week up to 12 weeks in duration. Please be aware that volunteers who join for more than 4 weeks will be trained to assist the researchers with data manipulation and fin profiling (volunteers coming for less than 4 weeks won’t receive the training as it takes some time). Any volunteer staying over 8 weeks joins as a Research Intern. Please note that this project does not run from mid November to mid January.
