Dolphin Research Australia Inc. is a marine research, education and
conservation charity.  We are pleased to announce that we have eco-volunteer
opportunities available for participants to join our Moreton Bay Dolphin
Research Expeditions in 2017. We have one or two week eco-volunteer
expeditions available between May and July 2017. The project offers a unique
learning experience for those passionate about dolphins and the marine
environment who want to contribute to increasing knowledge, awareness and
improving conservation efforts while supporting the research efforts. 

The research project focuses on Indo-Pacific bottlenose dolphins and
Australian humpback dolphins and aims to assess and monitor the abundance
and health of these populations in the Moreton Bay Marine Park and South
East Queensland region.  Participants have the opportunity to join the
research team and have a hands-on and participatory experience working from
small research vessels whilst being based at the University of Queensland
Moreton Bay Research Station on the beautiful North Stradbroke Island
located near Brisbane, Australia.  Participants will assist in collecting
data on the behaviour, acoustics and habitat use of coastal dolphins.  

No previous experience is required and all training will be provided to
participants.   Participants, however, do need to have the following;

-          An enthusiastic and positive attitude

-          Willingness to learn and work with a small team
