A decade ago, people thought that dolphins occasionally visited the Adriatic Sea off Slovenia, but didn’t actually live there. The researchers who lead this expedition proved the conventional wisdom wrong: they identified and tracked up to 100 dolphins that feed, breed, and nurse in the sea year round. Make it possible for these researchers to continue monitoring the dolphins they’ve come to know over the past decade.
he research focuses on the spectacularly large fin whale as well as on sperm whales, Risso’s dolphins, pilot whales, striped andbottlenose dolphins. We have places for Cetacean Volunteer Researchers to join for one or more weeks from May to September of every year. Individuals, groups, families and students doing research all welcome. Cost for food, accommodation on board the research boat, programme materials, equipment, scientific lectures & training; from £770.
