Dolphin Research Australia is a marine research, education and conservation
charity that provides long-term independent research and education programs.
We are pleased to announce that we have eco-volunteer opportunities
available for participants to join our Moreton Bay Dolphin Research
Expeditions in 2020. We have 4 day and 8 day eco-volunteer expeditions
available between May and July 2020. 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
- General interest in dolphin biology and ecology
- Be able to work long-hours on a small vessel (not susceptible to
chronic sea sickness)
- Ability to communicate fluently in English (both written and
- Good fitness level (the work requires agility to work on small
vessels and participants will be required to regularly get on and off small
boats, move around the vessel whilst underway and at times in choppy
