About Program

Our program includes three main parts: working in the Istanbul Strait, the Aegean Sea, and the Levantine Sea and is designed to give interns the opportunity to get hands-on field experience and to understand how field studies are planned, undertaken and analysed. The 4 sub-projects have been constructed to collect missing scientific data, which has been deemed to be one of the most important barriers in the way of effective conservation strategies. Whilst 60% of cetacean species are globally threatened, the situation is more critical for the Mediterranean subpopulations which have all been defined as “threatened” or “data deficient”. Find more information on our website or email us.

The responsibilities of the Intern/Volunteer include but are not limited to: Performing boat and land surveys, Collecting spatial-temporal, behavioural and acoustic data, Operating theodolite and software during the survey, Data entry, Photo-identification, and other related software
