Join the crew of the research vessels Toftevaag (Alborán Sea) or Va de Bon Coeur (Balearics) and embark on a scientific expedition. You will live and work on board for 11 days, often spending entire days on the open sea, sailing through important marine areas (such as deep sea mountains or canyons that are prime feeding grounds for sperm whales or loggerhead turtles).
The Ionian Dolphin Project is dedicated to ensuring the long-term survival of dolphins and monk seals in the coastal waters of the Eastern Ionian Sea. During your stay you will be part of the Ionian Dolphin scientific team involved in marine mammal research and conservation. You will work side by side our researchers and help to conduct daily surveys at sea.
The waters off the Slovenian coast and in the Gulf of Trieste in the northern Adriatic are home to a resident population of bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops truncatus). Over the course of 20 years of scientific work, Morigenos has been able to determine that some 150-200 dolphins live here all year round. You will go out to sea every day to locate these fascinating marine mammals. You will record their movements, behaviour and environmental data and learn the techniques of dolphin research.
Volunteer in the Maldives to help our partner organisation rescue and care for injured sea turtles. During a 2-4 week volunteer programme, you will help the veterinarians to care for the turtle patients in the rescue centre and gain in-depth knowledge about sea turtles, marine conservation and life in this unique marine ecosystem of the Maldives.
