Montenegro. The project will be running year round, starting from September
2016 and is focused on the conservation of marine mammals through combining
research and education. Therefore, while marine mammal abundance, distribution,
behaviour and threats will be monitored through boat and land surveys, active
involvement of stakeholders to the projects will also be supported. This
project provides an excellent opportunity for post-grads, students and
individuals interested in getting more experience and knowledge in the field of
marine mammal research.</span></p>
