The Marine Mammal Research Group of the Macquarie University in Sydney is currently looking for volunteers during the winter season 2009. The boat-based surveys will be carried out in the Port Stephens-Great Lakes Marine Park, 200 km north of Sydney, from 23rd February to 23rd March 2009. Interns will participate in the field on a daily basis collecting behavioural data of Indo-Pacific bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops aduncus) in conjunction with the impact of dolphin-watching boats. The internship offers an excellent opportunity for qualified and motivated individuals to obtain field training in photo-identification methodology and analysis with experienced dolphin researchers.

Ideal internship applicants are at least undergraduates of a scientifically oriented university subject. Preferably, participants should have a motor boat driving license and/or experience in marine mammal photo-ID.

Accommodation and food are provided during the stay but applicants are responsible for all travelling expenses to and from the field site.

Interested applicants should contact Andre Steckenreuter:
