Dear Bologna students and other potential interns,

Vivamar Society, is happy to be able to invite 

5 Bologna University students (undergraduates or graduates) to the FULLY FUNDED intern opportunity for the

ADIS (Ambassadorship for Dolphins of Istria & Slovenia) project.

The project deals with research and conservation activities for the vulnerable Bottlenose Dolphins off Istria, Croatia – in the heart of Europe, since 2002.

The invitation refers to highly motivated students that would like to learn about the research techniques and help in the conservation of the last remaining marine mammals in the NE Adriatic. 


To be selected for this fully funded opportunity, please send us your CV with the cover letter of motivation to info at vivamar.org. 

The Bologna students might get reimbursed also for the transfer costs but will need to pay their health insurance.


There are still places available to students from other universities, on a regular basis, therefore some more words to other interns:

VIVAMAR teams are small and can therefore offer intense connection between the team members and a dedicated attention of a researcher to the motivated students. The program comprises lectures on Marine Ecology, Marine Mammals of the Adriatic Sea, other large vertebrates in the Adriatic and their role for the Marine Ecosystem balance, daily research on the field, including learning of the methods, data analysis and possible engagement in Vivamar awareness activities to the local people. Along the interns will learn how to prepare and deliver the key messages, which might remain as a good learning experience also for the everyday life and later for the employment.

The available team dates are:



26th JUN - 6th JUL




10th JUL - 20th JUL




14th AUG - 24th AUG




28th AUG - 7th SEP





The price for an 11 day intern team duration is 965 EUR. 



This is an all-inclusive rate.

The price doesn’t include the transportation to and from the research site and the health insurance.
