Support basic research on dolphin populations at the National Marine Park of Alonissos, N.Sporades, Greece.
The "Northern Aegean Dolphin Project” is a 'work for a cause' program designed and implemented by MOm/Hellenic Society for the Study and Protection of the Monk Seal. In a time of intense economic hardship, especially for NGOs in Greece, the longevity of this research project solely depends upon the subscription revenues of its participants.
Participants will have the opportunity to get actively involved in basic-research efforts and techniques in order to monitor the local dolphin populations, while attending evening training seminars, guided and assisted by MOm’s expert staff.
The project is carried out in the wider area of the National Marine Park of Alonissos, Northern Sporades (Greece), which is currently one of the largest marine protected areas in Europe (approximately 2.260 km2), hosting various marine mammal species.
