Dear all,

We are looking for motivated volunteers/ students that are willing to
engage in the Berau marine vertebrates program, which aims to protect a
high diversity of marine vertebrates including cetaceans, turtles, whale
sharks and manta rays in the Marine Park of Derawan Islands, East
Kalimantan, Indonesia through a seven-day monitoring survey in the
beautiful landscape of the Berau archipelago while being mostly based on
the island of Maratua (day 1-7) but also three nights on Derawan Island
(Day 8-10). Research objectives are determining relative abundance, core
area mapping, and assessing seasonal species diversity and site
fidelity. Through earlier surveys it was found that the highest relative
abundance of ceteaceans was within 5km radius of islands or reefs, and
therefore we also conduct coral reef monitoring at several locations by
snorkling. This will be the second survey for 2014 using overseas
volunteers.

Dates:
10-20 October 2014 (spaces still available for 2 volunteers)

Day by day schedule, qualifications for volunteers and costs involved can
be downloaded from a flyer posted on our website at:

We are looking forward to your partcipation!

Sampai jumpa, Danielle & Budiono
