MareTerra Onlus (www.mareterra-erc.org) is offering internships to join
research projects on the conservation of the bottlenose dolphins and marine
environment in Sardinia island, a hotspot of biodiversity of the
Mediterranean Sea.

MareTerra is a non-profit organization created in 2012 by experienced
researchers promoting the conservation of nature and sustainable
development. On board our boats, interns will join dolphin-watching
activities and learn research methods to monitor the habitat use, abundance
and distribution of the bottlenose dolphins logging data into our database.
Interns will collect georeferenced data on dolphins, fishing activities and
boat traffic that impact their behaviour. Our research projects aim to
implement measures for marine ecosystem conservation and promote a
sustainable and responsible management of fishing and tourism activities.

Working in an international and multicultural context, our interns will
play an active role in environmental education to develop awareness and
respect for the marine environment among tourists and locals.
We accept applications of varying duration between May and October 2024.

Required skills:
- Ability to communicate fluently in English (English level > B2).
- Self-confidence.
- Flexibility, adaptability to an international work environment and
- Good public relations skills.
- Confidence on board a motorboat and ability to swim properly.
We look for people who are highly motivated, responsible and willing to
work long hours in the field.

For any questions and to receive detailed information for applying, please
