Marine Mammals Research Association (DMAD) is accepting volunteers starting from December 2015.
DMAD is dedicated to run marine mammal research and to increase public awareness (specifically working with fishermen and in-need kids) in the region. Despite the large cetacean biodiversity in the northeastern Levantine, there haven’t been any long-term studies in the area. Therefore, we aim to fulfil the knowledge gaps on marine mammals. This project provides an excellent opportunity for post-grads, students and individuals interested in getting more experience and knowledge in the field of marine mammal research.

VOLUNTEERS are responsible from behavioural data collection, theodolite operation, photographing individuals and cataloguing dolphin/monk seal pictures, data entry. Training will be provided beforehand. In addition, there will be ArcGIS and SPSS courses running which will be free for volunteers during their stay.
A biology background is not mandatory but advantageous. What is more important is the applicant should be enthusiastic and self-motivated on marine mammal conservation and willing to learn. Minimum commitment is one month, although for a fuller experience we recommend two or more months. 

This position is unpaid and requires a contribution fee of 500euro per month which covers the accommodation and project related activities. 

Please send a cover letter and CV to info at dmad.org.tr. For more information please visit www.dmad.org.tr  or email us.
Have a good day,
Dr. Aylin Akkaya Bas
