Dear MARMAM

Filicudi WildLife Conservation is a non-profit association aimed at the study and conservation of cetaceans and sea turtles in the Aeolian Archipelago (Southern Italy). 
Become a volunteer for dolphins and sea turtles inthe Aeolian Archipelago!  You can spend an enthusiastic week living in atypical Aeolian house in the wonderful Island of Filicudi. During the research weeksthe volunteers will be involved in making daily boat excursions for monitoring cetaceansand sea turtles and assisting the research personnel to collect data. Asregards the cetaceans the research activities are mainly focused on thepopulation of common bottlenose dolphin (Tursiopstruncatus) and  striped dolphin (Stenella coeruleoalba), but in some periodsof the year it is possible to sight fin whale (Balaenoptera physalus) and sperm whale (Physeter macrocephalus).The monitoring sessions will be also dedicated to identifying and mapping the foragingareas for the loggerhead sea turtle Carettacaretta and to rescue individuals with different problems,such as longlines ingestion and boat collision. As a volunteer you will also participate at the firstaid and care of the sea turtles in the Rescue Centre of Filicudi and consequentlyto the release of turtles at sea.
