Dear Marmamers,

I would like to draw your attention to the following:

EDMAKTUB Expedition Gulf of Guinea 2020.

Do you want to be part of the team?

We look for collaboration with other local or international groups

The EDMAKTUB association announces its next Gulf of Guinea Expedition 
2020 within the SACET Project (South Atlantic Cetacean Project). 
Departing from Las Palmas de Gran Canaria the expedition will travel the 
west coast of Africa until reaching the Gulf of Guinea. The project 
consists in obtaining maximum data on cetaceans both during the journey 
and in the gulf area. At the same time, all possible information will be 
obtained on all species of marine animals, oceanographic conditions and 
the presence of waste and/or plastics. The project aims to collaborate 
with both local and international organizations by offering the 
possibility of sharing information, collecting data or samples and 
participating in campaigns. The countries in the Gulf of Guinea where 
work is likely to be carried out are Sao Tome and Principe, Equatorial 
Guinea and Gabon, without excluding other possibilities and also 
depending on the situation of each country during the expedition, in 
respect to both the Covid19 pandemic and the collaborations available 
that will allow us to carry out research in them. The scheduled dates 
are from July to December 2020.

More information on the webpage 

We invite any, especially local, entities from any of the countries in 
this area and also internationally, that may be interested in 
collaborating and/or participating and in obtaining data and / or 
collecting samples.

At the same time, up to four people who want to participate in the 
expedition are required, prioritizing, if possible, the ability to 
depart from the Canary Islands or to join the team at one of the 
possible destinations. We are looking for anyone who has a profile in 
marine sciences, specific knowledge of cetaceans is not necessary. 
Knowledge of photography and video documention and social networks would 
be an important asset. It is important to have a minimal level of 
nautical experience as a lot of time will be spent on board.

We are also opening up the possibility to those who do not have so much 
time and want to participate in periods of at least 10 days- contact us 
to organize this option that will be provided from August 20 to December 15.

As it is not a funded project, those who form part of the team will have 
to finance their own travel expenses to and from the point of departure, 
and although it will not be a paid activity, they will not have any 
expenses while on board. People who want to participate for short 
periods will have to make a financial contribution.

If you have questions and are interested in joining us, write to us at

If you know someone interested please share!
