Firth” project in Scotland this summer (May to October) have recently been
launched.

For 2010, the dates for our 11 day field programme (arriving on a Monday and

The field teams are very much run in the form of a training / educational
programme, with formal lectures, seminars and presentations by the research
team, practical training in field methodologies and data collection and
analysis, and direct participation in the research, education and rescue
work of this dynamic and outgoing conservation charity.

The cost for an 11 day internship in 2010 is £750, and this will cover you
for full board (all your accommodation and food costs), your full equipment
needs and ALL associated field costs during your stay with us in the
heritage fishing village of Gardenstown in Banff. You'll simply need to
arrange your own travel itinerary to us in Banffshire, northeat Scotland
(nearest airport Dyce, Aberdeen, approx. 1½ hours from the field base by
coach) plus any personal spending money.
