Dear Marmam colleagues,

the Tethys Research Institute is a non-profit research organisation 
based in Italy, supporting marine conservation through science and 
public awareness, founded in 1986. Tethys’ goal is the conservation of 
the marine environment and its biodiversity, achieved through the 
provision of scientific knowledge to the national and international 
marine conservation processes, public awareness and education.

In almost 30 years of Tethys Research Institute activity, thousands of 
volunteers from around the world have participated in our long-term 
“Citizen Science” research projects, where amateur or non-specialised 
people are actively involved in scientific research.

This year the Tethys Research Institute, for those wishing to 
participate in our research expeditions, is offering two destinations to 
choose from:

You can either join the Ionian Dolphin Project in Vonitsa to study 
dolphins in the beautiful setting of Ionian Greece, or get a place on 
board the sailing vessel "Pelagos" to participate in our Cetacean 
Sanctuary Research project to work in whales and dolphins research in 
the Ligurian Sea, Italy.

Project participants will have a unique opportunity to live in close 
contact with those who have dedicated their lives to the study of 
cetaceans, while giving us a real support during our fieldwork.

Detailed information for those interested in joining us and share with 
us an unforgettable experience can be found in the following links:

Cetacean Sanctuary Research (Italy)

programs are encourage to contact us at *tethys at tethys.org
