This Programme offers you the opportunity to join the longest ongoing study of a resident population of bottlenose dolphins in the Mediterranean Sea.

The aim of the project is to provide an overall picture of the population status and dynamics of the bottlenose dolphins around the islands of Lošinj and Cres, islands off the coast of Croatia.


The research focuses on dolphin population dynamics, photo – identification, behavioural sampling, acoustic monitoring, and the collection of stranding data for genetic, forage ecology and toxicological analysis. Data is used to produce a regular report on the status and ecology of the population and to offer solutions for their effective conservation.  From the research station at Veli Lošinj we monitor the daily behaviour of the bottlenose dolphins of the region. It is now possible to identify around 450 individual dolphins with the help of photo-identification.


•In good physical condition, to be steady on the legs and able to swim;

•Able to tolerate hot weather and long periods on the boat under the sun;

•Speak English;

•Over 18 years old; 

•Be committed to nature conservation and animal protection;

•Positive attitude towards working with people from different countries.


Project dates run for 12 days from May to September.


The total cost ranges from £735 to £856 GB pounds for 12 days (depending on course date). This includes: accommodation, food and drink, boat fuel, lectures, internet, basic insurance and scientific supervision.
