Help with conservation project in the Azores

24th January 2012 Print

Do something different this year and head to islands in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean to take part in a conservation project studying whales, dolphins and loggerhead turtles!

You can join Biosphere Expeditions, the award winning, not for profit, conservation organisation in the Azores as it helps carry out research looking at the animals’ life histories and migration patterns across the ocean in an effort to formulate effective conservation strategies.

Working as part of a small, international team you will photograph whales and dolphins while also recording them for local and international monitoring databases. There will be the opportunity to make recordings of whale and dolphin vocalisations and capture loggerhead turtles in the open ocean for tagging and release.

During the day you will be working from a modern catamaran, while at night you will stay on-shore in modern, guesthouse style accommodation.

Projects for 2012 run between: 2-11 April; 14-23 April and 26 April – 5 May. The cost is £1220 per person excluding travel to and from the Azores.
