Become an Eco-Volunteer in Blue World Institute, Croatia

The Blue World Institute of Marine Research and Conservation is a
Non-Governmental Organisation from Veli Lošinj, Croatia, set up with the
intention to carry out scientific research and conservation projects and
promote environmental awareness in the Lošinj-Cres archipelago, Croatia and
Adriatic region as a whole.

The major scientific research interest of Blue World Institute is the study
of bottlenose dolphins (*Tursiops truncatus*) in the Adriatic Sea,
implemented through the Adriatic Dolphin Project. Initiated in 1987 it is
now the longest continuous study of a population of bottlenose dolphins in
the Mediterranean Sea. The aim is research on population ecology, genetics,
acoustics and habitats of bottlenose dolphins and other Cetacean species of
the Adriatic.

Within the Adriatic Dolphin Project, Blue World Institute conducts an
Eco-volunteering program for highly motivated individuals who come to join
the research and help in data collecting and analysis throughout the
season. During the course period, Eco-volunteers are being educated in
cetacean biology, marine conservation and scientific research techniques by
the resident researchers. Received funds from this program are important
for further research and conservation in this region.
