You can make a difference

Corporations and foundations can be a significant source of support for marine research and conservation, and we welcome the opportunity to explore how partnering with the BDRI can also support your mission.

 

The Bottlenose Dolphin Research Institute (BDRI) is an independent marine science center dedicated to research, education, and conservation of marine mammals and marine birds. The mission of the BDRI since 2005 has been  to study marine biodiversity and to educate scientists, students, decision-makers, and the public on scientific research and how to contribute to marine conservation. Our research team also trains future generations of marine scientists and are committed to understanding and reducing the impact of human activities on the marine ecosystems. BDRI’s reputation and success rest solidly on its ability to publish multiple scientific studies in prestigious scientific journals, participate in international conferences and workshops.

 

We are seeking like-minded individuals and organizations to achieve our goal of carrying out new research projects and educational programs that ensures marine mammals and their environment will persist for future generations.

 

Your interest and support in BDRI research programs is a reflection of your commitment to the future of marine mammals and their environments.

One of the aims of BDRI is to train future researchers in marine mammals science by offering a wide range of programs and opportunities for students at all stages of their development. In addition to the marine research activities, we undertake rigorous educational programs providing work experience opportunities: internship positions, volunteering, training courses, and university project placements for bachelor and master students throughout the year.

 

Our educational programs aim to prepare students for a professional career in the research of marine mammals, marine birds, and conservation of the marine environment. 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 scientific research, boat based field work, intensive training while having fun and meeting people from all over the world, then these are the programs for you.
