Volunteers wanted for our 2013 land-based survey

We are looking for volunteers to assist with our 2013 land-based survey. The research will be conducted for a four hour period each day from 8 July – 15 September (the peak migration period). Volunteers will carry out a number of roles, including observing, recording data and plotting the position of whales on an Apple Ipad application. No previous experience in fauna surveys is required. However, to ensure a high standard of scientific rigour, volunteers are required to undergo training in the survey methods and we ask that volunteers spend at least two weeks with us.

Whilst helping out with the survey, volunteers will be camping on site. Volunteers will be required to contribute to daily camp duties as well as the scientific data collection. The camp is located near the beach. It is a great place to go exploring and has a lovely, communal vibe.

If you are interested in volunteering with us or would like some more information about the research please contact us:
