About this program

Work with marine biologists and gain experience as a “citizen scientist” on an 11-day research, education and conservation project located in magnificent Croatia. Spend your days out on the Adriatic Sea, conducting data input & administration, and data analysis to help determine the plight of dolphins locally.

Human action is affecting the populations of dolphins through overfishing, water pollution, and it is this program’s aim to research and study these issues in order to protect the dolphins.

In your free time, explore the sights and culture of Croatia, or take part in a multitude of adventures the region has to offer, such as, hiking, biking, sailing and more!

Itinerary

All volunteers will have the opportunity to learn about the biology, ecology and conservation of marine mammals. Volunteers will have scientific supervision while working with data - data collection on the water, data input in the office, and analyzing data from the previous day. Each morning all new information needs to be checked and entered into the catalog, and this information is analyzed. Afternoons are spent at sea, observing dolphin activity and recording these findings. Throughout your stay, there will be many lectures offered about culture, geography, biology, data collection, wildlife and what to do in the unlikely event that a marine mammal is stranded on land. For those interested in education, there will be an opportunity to participate in social media, outreach days and, educational presentations.
