your BSc, MSc thesis in connection with your university.

with focus on humpback whales, minke whales and white-beaked dolphins. Data
that you can then use for your studies.

environmental studies.

to those that can stay the longest, this is to minimise data error and
creates a stronger bond with the staff. Please note: Those living in a
country outside the EEA can only stay for 3 months maximum.

camera), fun monthly activities and events, 1 hot meal a day.
