About

Interested in Cetacean Conservation?
We are looking for volunteers to get involved with research on the Bottlenose Dolphin and the Short-Beaked Common Dolphin in Amvrakikos Gulf and the Inner Ionian Sea archipelago.
Research duties involve: monitoring dolphins, photo identification, collection of data regarding other marine species and assessment of how dolphins interact with local fisheries.

Volunteers must be able to swim for safety reasons. A high level of fitness is required as well as the ability to be comfortable spending many hours at sea and being exposed to the sun for long periods of time. You can volunteer for one or more weeks from April to September.

If pastitsio and gyros aren't enough of a reason for you to go to Greece; then the stunningly blue waters, the medieval cities, and picturesque white houses with blue roofs should do the trick. Every island has a different vibe and will be well suited for a variety of travelers.
