Sea Search Research & Conservation is a research focused NPO based in Cape
Town, South Africa.    Which also run the Namibian Dolphin Project based in
Walvis Bay, Namibia

We currently have openings for 2 long-term volunteers for the period 01 Sep
to 30 Nov 2019 to assist with data processing, outreach activities and ad
hoc field work focusing on humpback whales and humpback dolphins.

As an integral part of a small team working with the project directors and
post graduate students - this is a great way to get a wide range of
research experience. Volunteers will be directly involved in all day to day
activities including data input, photo ID and/or acoustic data processing,
public outreach and equipment maintenance but will mainly work on a
dedicated data set or project.

We welcome participants who might be interested in working on a specific
project with the possibility of continuing this as part of their own
studies. Placement may be undertaken as credit towards your under- or
post-graduate degree (course dependent).

Please note, there is an associated fee which covers supervision, training
and a contribution to the project for the period.

Additionally - volunteers maybe interested in joining the marine mammal
research techniques course being run in Nov (see website for details)

Please contact info at seasearch.co.za with a CV and brief motivation by
email.

Kind regards
Dr Simon Elwen
