Volunteer research positions are available to assist
with common dolphin behavioural ecology research in
the Hauraki Gulf, New Zealand. Additional research
opportunities with dusky dolphins off Kaikoura, New
Zealand may be available.  

Field work will be boat-based from dedicated research
vessels and tour vessels. Field work will be weather
dependent and positions will include data entry and
analysis tasks.  Volunteers will gain experience in
dolphin photo-identification techniques, behavioural
data collection and analysis, and small boating

Previous experience is not necessary, but flexibility
and the ability to work in a variety of conditions at
sea is a must.  

Volunteers will be asked to commit to the project for
1-2 months and will be responsible for their own
food, housing and transportation while in New
Zealand, and their own travel to New Zealand. 
Volunteer positions will run year-round throughout
2008, with start and end dates to be arranged upon
successful application.  To apply for the position,
please submit a cover letter summarizing any related
experience and approximate dates of availability. 
For full consideration, please also enclose a copy of
your CV and contact information (email addresses and
phone numbers) for at least 3 professional references
and send to wjschrader at yahoo.com.
