We are looking for volunteers to participate in the Sperm
Whales and Tourism research project at Kaikoura, New Zealand. Data
are collected from multiple platforms including shore, tour vessels,
aircraft, and research vessel based platforms. Skills that will be
obtained include behavioural and acoustic data collection from a
research vessel, behavioural data collection from shore using a
surveyor's theodolite, collection of photographic, video and behavioural
data from aircraft and tour vessels, and additional research tasks and
data entry and analyses.
No prior experience is necessary and training will be provided by research team leaders. You must be comfortable
working in the field in a variety of conditions and with a large,
international team of scientists and students.
The next field
season begins January 5th and runs through February 2011.
An additional field season begins April 1 and runs through June
2011. Minimum duration to volunteer is one month, with
a 3-month commitment preferred.

housing, food and cell phone. Information on the cost of
