Dear all,



*Please find below details of our Remote Internship with DMAD*


Many countries have closed their borders and it is currently almost
impossible to travel due to the outbreak of COVID-19 but that doesn't mean
that you can't benefit from our knowledge and develop your career or get
help with your thesis remotely. Students and graduates can receive both
research and public outreach experience working with the DMAD team.

WHO ARE DMAD AND WHAT DO WE DO?

DMAD - Marine Mammals Research Association have scientific projects running
in Turkey, Montenegro and Albania. We conduct long-term studies of marine
mammals in Istanbul, Antalya, the Levantine sea, Montenegrin coastal waters
and the northern coastline of Albania.  We aim to address questions about
marine mammal abundance, distribution and behaviour, define critical
habitats and investigate the impact of major threats, ranging from tourism
to hydrocarbon exploration.

Our wider attention focuses on the promotion and implementation of
awareness initiatives targeted at the local community.
