We still have some remaining field dates on our 2014 "Whales and dolphins of
the Moray Firth" project in Scotland this summer (running from May to
October)

The CRRU field teams are 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 2014 is £895, 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, Aberdeenshire. You'll
simply need to arrange your own travel itinerary to us in Banff, Scotland
(nearest airport Dyce, Aberdeen, approx. 1½ hours from the field base by
coach) plus any personal spending money.

For full details and available dates, please visit the CRRU project page at
www.crru.org.uk/join_the_team.asp, or email us directly at info at crru.org.uk
for further information and a pdf copy of the project briefing and
booking/application form.

Founded in 1997, the CRRU boasts over 70 scientific publications to date (

research institutions and other environmental organisations, current studies
focus on the key coastal cetacean species frequenting the outer Moray Firth
in NE Scotland - namely the bottlenose dolphin, harbour porpoise and the
minke whale -providing robust scientific data for the adoption of management
measures and effective conservation strategies for their future protection.
