Slovenian Dolphin Project is a long-term research, monitoring and
conservation programme, focusing on bottlenose dolphins (*Tursiops truncatus
*) in Slovenian and adjacent waters (north Adriatic) since 2002. Research
activities focus on dolphin distribution, abundance, social structure,
habitat use, feeding habits, fishery interactions and tourism impact.

Summer Dolphin Research Camps offer interested people to join Morigenos team
for 10 days and participate in research activities. This includes boat
surveys, land watches, theodolite tracking, photo-identification,
behavioural observations, lectures and training. Food and accommodation are

participate, regardless of nationality or field of expertise. No previous
experience is required.
Apart from research activities, the participants share everyday duties and
chores with the team members.
