Interested individuals have the opportunity to get an insight in the work that our centre is carrying out by participating in a boat-based dolphin research survey investigating ecology and behaviour of bottlenose dolphins. In the end of the survey you will have better understanding about bottlenose dolphins in general, but also about how the information that we have about these wonderful animals is gained.
The Bottlenose Dolphin Research Institute is not a tourist or dolphin watching organisation, instead, our institute is one of the leading dolphin research centres in Europe, and one of the most important in the world.
The BDRI’s main work is to contribute to bottlenose dolphin conservation through research. Our research is published in scientific journals which is the basis for all the information that we have about bottlenose dolphins today. Hence, knowledge is directly connected to protection and conservation. How can we help something we do not understand?
In order to spread this information, the BDRI has understood the importance of public awareness.
And our “Researcher for a day” program is playing an important part of this.
