Dear MARMAM members,

Vivamar Society, is happy to invite you to the internship programme

The project is dedicated to the research and conservation activities of the vulnerable Bottlenose Dolphins off Istria, Croatia – in the heart of Europe. The invitation refers to motivated students that would like to obtain hands-on experiences in dolphin research and learn about the field techniques needed for possible further career in the marine mammal science.

VIVAMAR teams are small and can therefore offer intense connection between the team members and a focused attention of a main researcher to the students. The program comprises lectures about the local bottlenose dolphin population and its threats, Marine Ecology, Marine Mammals and other large vertebrates in the Adriatic, boat based research in the field, including methods for data obtaining, data analysis and possible engagement in Vivamar activities with the key messages about dolphin awareness to the local people. The experience is excellent also from the point of everyday life and your common attitude towards the marine ecosystem. The cost for 11 days is 998EUR and comprises accommodation, food and all ‘technicalities’ like is the equipment etc. The nearest airports where you have to arrange own your flights to are either Pula (Croatia) or Trieste (Italy) and taking a bus to come to the research base in Istria, Croatia. 

For all details about the project and further logistic questions, you are welcome to send us an inquiry to  <mailto:info at vivamar.org> info at vivamar.org and receive a pdf with the programme. Or you are invited to visit  <http://www.vivamar.org/en/volunteer> www.vivamar.org/en/volunteer for a brief overview.

In 2015 the goal was to evaluate the distribution and abundance of the local bottlenose dolphin population from data collected since 2003, off Istria. In 2016 season the main target will be to define the threats and evaluate the anthropogenic impact to the dolphin population. It is challenging but important for these dolphins and their conservation. So you are welcome to be part of this year’s ambassadorship for dolphins.

With kindest regards,
