Call for proposals on Marine mammalogy
The Swiss Cetacean Society - SCS is a non-profit organisation devoted to
the preservation of cetaceans in their natural habitat. To favour the
protection of cetaceans, the SCS provides logistic support such as
material, research platforms and eco-volunteers, who are participants
for field work on research projects. These members are highly motivated
individuals with education and skills in the field of marine mammal
biology. Since 1997, the SCS has participated to 7 international
research programs, organized more than 180 scientific expeditions for an
equivalent of more than 1’000 working days, recruiting and educating
more than 1’000 volunteers. Projects are evaluated by the SCS scientific
committee composed of biologists from various fields.
The SCS invites for proposals (in English only) for field-based research
on cetacean and sirenian biology, ecology and conservation.
Scientists, conservation agencies, and any other private or public
institution - from any nationality or regional area - involved in
research and conservation are eligible to apply.
Typical SCS field-based projects concern, e.g.:
- Bio-acoustic recordings
- Faeces and skin sample collection
- Assessment of anthropogenic impact on cetaceans
Please contact the SCS secretariat (scs1 at vtxnet.ch) to obtain the
research grant application and conditions.
Deadline for submissions: the 30th of October 2008.
