We are looking for people who want to gain more experience in cetacean
research to join us in summer 2017.


Interns are invited to assist the Sea Watch Foundation with the running of
the "Cardigan Bay Monitoring Project". The project is based in New Quay,
West Wales, and supports the conservation management of the bottlenose
dolphin, harbour porpoise and grey seal populations of Cardigan Bay,
monitoring their abundance, distribution, reproductive success and
population structure using a combination of vessel-based, land-based and
acoustic surveys. Sea Watch has been monitoring these populations on behalf
of the Welsh government (through funding provided by Natural Resources
Wales) for over a decade. Cardigan Bay contains Britain's largest coastal
population of bottlenose dolphins, for which two special areas of
conservation have been established under the EU Habitats Directive. Interns
will also be involved with running the national cetacean sightings database
held by the organisation.


We are looking for a Research Assistant to help lead on the project and
manage other interns, an Education and Outreach Assistant to help enthuse
others about cetaceans and getting involved with their research and up to
seven Research Interns at a time. To find out more about each role and to
apply, please visit our webpage
<http://www.seawatchfoundation.org.uk/internships/> .


The application deadline is 8th Jan for the Research Assistant role and 15th
Jan for the other roles.


We look forward to hearing from you!
