The Bottlenose Dolphin Research Institute (BDRI) is a marine science center for Field Research and Training in cetaceans ecology and behaviour.
A great opportunity is open for dolphin enthusiasts to participate as volunteers in hands-on research on free-ranging wild bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops truncatus) and other cetacean species along the North western coast of the Iberian Peninsula (Galician waters, Spain).
So, if you want to be a part of this unique experience and are a person who is interested in going abroad and obtaining hands-on experience in marine mammals research, boat based field work, intensive training and mentoring in marine ecology, while having fun and meeting people from all over the world, then you should consider to participate in one of our programs.
An internship period with the BDRI offers an excellent opportunity for qualified and motivated individuals to obtain field and laboratory training in marine mammal’s research methodology and analysis under the mentorship of experienced researchers. Undergraduate and postgraduate students can present this personal research project as their Bachelor, Master, Diploma, etc).
The Field Research Courses in marine mammals science are academically intensive training courses that are specifically designed for people (students and graduates) seriously interested in pursuing a career in marine mammals science. The courses provide an in-depth, hands-on immersion into the field of cetaceans research and more particularly dolphins field research.
Dedicated to those who are interested in participating and learning about cetaceans research and conservation. It is open to anyone age 18 and above, with no special prerequisites, only the will to learn about the dolphins and their environment. Volunteers will participate in boat-based research surveys investigating ecology and behaviour of bottlenose dolphins and other cetaceans along the Galician coast (Spain).
The Bottlenose Dolphin Research Institute is a marine science centre for Research, Education and training in cetaceans’ ecology and behaviour. Students and volunteers can participate in hands-on research on wild bottlenose dolphins and other cetaceans along the north-western coast of Iberian Peninsula (Galicia, Spain). The Bottlenose Dolphin Research Institute offers through the Internship, Volunteer and Field research Course programs hands-on experience in marine mammal research, boat based field work, intensive training and mentoring in marine ecology. It is a great opportunity for interested individuals to go abroad and participate in the BDRI programs during their gap year or to learn about cetacean’s ecology and behaviour during the holidays. The education and training programs will all take part on the north-western coast of the Iberian Peninsula (Galicia, Spain), a true marine biologist’s paradise.
