The Bottlenose Dolphin Research Institute - BDRI - www.thebdri.com offers comprehensive and intensive courses during the 2007 Spring Season for motivated individuals, who are seeking thorough training in approaches to the study of free ranging wild bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops truncatus). These intensive educational courses provide experience in specialized research techniques, consisting of field sessions and lectures. The courses will last 6 or 13 days, and - weather permitting - we will be out on the water at least during 4 or 9 of these days respectively. 
   
  Using study techniques that neither harm nor seriously disturb the animals, students conduct studies into the ecology and behaviour of bottlenose dolphins in Sardinian waters, as well as collecting detailed information about their environment. Students will actively participate in data collection and analyses as part of an ongoing research. The successful completion of the course will earn a Certificate of Attendance.
