Dear MARMAMers

KAI Marine Services (www.kaiexpeditions.com ) announces its 2014
courses on “Cetacean and turtle research and conservation”, held in
Malta ( Mediterranean Sea) during the months of July, August and
September in the context of the European project LIFE+ MIGRATE. A
financial contribution to survey cost of Euro 980 per Person and
expedition is a requisite to join the crew.

These courses are a unique opportunity for anyone interested in
learning about the study of marine biodiversity, participating
actively in a visual and acoustic survey of this project that will
develop management guidelines and marine protected areas in the
framework of the European Union Habitat Directive.

Participants will learn basic concepts of navigation and shipboard
surveys, participating in lookouts, cetacean sighting recording,
acoustic recording, photo-identification image collection, sea turtle
tagging, genetic sampling and recording data on human activities.

During the seven day courses, lectures will be given by experienced
researchers, to introduce participants to the methods implemented
during the survey and the application to conservation of the results.
