I am a PhD student with the University of Otago and I am looking for
volunteers for a project on Hector's dolphins in New Zealand from the 6th
until the end of January 2009. The fieldwork will be in beautiful Akaroa
in the South Island of New Zealand. We will be theodolite tracking
Hector's dolphins from a cliff overlooking the harbour in order to gather
informations on the detections range of some acoustic devices (T-PODs)
that will be deployed in the water during the observations.
Full training will be provided however a biology background and previous
experience working with marine mammals is a bonus. The succesful applicant
must be responsible and ready to work long hours outdoor.
Due to limited fundings we are not able to provide an accomodation however
Akaroa offers a number of options including backpackers and camping
In order to apply please send your CV together with a cover letter to
