Dear all,



*Please find below details of our Remote Internship with the Marine Mammal
Research Association - **Deniz Memelileri Araştırma Derneği (DMAD).*



Due to COVID-19 it is still challenging to travel safely to other countries
at this moment, 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, graduates, career changers etc can receive both research and
public outreach experience working with the DMAD team.
