An opportunity exists to join a sailing  expedition off the South West
Coast of Ireland to take part in a survey looking at the spatial and
temperate distribution of cetaceans - with particular emphasis for  habitat
preference and the dynamic variables that affect such habitat.

Participants will be expected to participate in a visual survey of the area
and record sightings  using Logger 2010 (courtesy of IFAW and Marine
Conservation Research).The expedition will be run over 2 separate weeks (7
days and 7 nights each  ) 7 – 13 October and 15 – 21 October 2018 with
participants taking part in one or both weeks. The survey will be conducted
during daylight hours only and the boat will return to the coast each
evening to moor or anchor in the bays of the Irish south west coast. The
cost for one week is €800 and €1300 for 2 weeks. The cost includes
accommodation on board a 37ft sailing yacht, all food, fuel, marina fees
and sailing gear. There is a break of 2 nights between each week where
participants on the 2 week trip can make their own arrangements for food
and accommodation.   For undergrad and masters students interested in a
particular subject for their thesis which relates to the area and marine
fauna therein, we can arrange the expeditions to accommodate their
particular subject if  enough notice is given
