*VOLUNTEERING PROGRAM WITH MARINE MAMMALS IN ECUADOR*

*BACKGROUND: *FEMM (Fundación Ecuatoriana para el estudio de Mamíferos
Marinos), is a private, non-profit and volunteering organization. We have
been working on research and conservation for 30 years to benefit Marine
mammals: bottlenose dolphins (*Tursiops truncatus)* and humpback
whales (*Megaptera
novaeangliae*) mainly and in recent years with marine-coastal protected
areas to preserve their habitats.



We need volunteers to help us to support projects and activities related
these marine mammals and marine coastal protected areas. The main areas of
work are related to research, conservation, sustainable management,
environmental education, ecotourism and policies. We expect that volunteers
could be involved in conservation, education, administrative, social
media/web, and fundraising work and other activities.

The volunteers collaborate in the marine mammals researchs in both field
work (photo-identification, measure of parameters, gps, collect the
behaviour, group size, etc.) and office work (data collection, edition and
analyse the data that we got). Beside volunteers help in the networking
promotion, fundraising for the research projects and the administrative
work.

Volunteers will live and work together so they will share accomodation,
house tasks different ways of thinking, different cultures and experiences.



*WHERE*: Santa Elena and Posorja, Ecuador



*WHEN: *The bottlenose dolphins of the area that we study they are always
in their habitats so we do field trips during all the year. The humpback
whale season is between June and Septembre. Beside we have office work to
analyze all this data all the year.



*FEES: * There are two different volunteering pograms:

-       Paid volunteering: a minimum of 1 month is required. Is More
information in the link below.



-       Free volunteering: for those volunteers who want to stay more than
6 months.



The benefits in both programs are the same: accommodation on special
requirements and condition basis, two meals per day (lunch and dinner) and
the field trips. With part of the money of the paid volunteering we can do
this field work trips. We have a donation program as well for the people
who would like to help.
