Tethys is conducting internationally qualified scientific research aimed at the conservation of whales and dolphins since 1986.
The institute has been promoting the first citizen science projects on Mediterranean
cetaceans and offers not just whale watching, but exciting field courses for paying volunteers
wishing to help researchers at sea.
Join an expedition
Both Tethys’ ongoing long term projects – CSR in the Ligurian sea and IDP in Greece – are citizen science projects. 2014 teams will go on until the end of September. Anyone can participate.
In addition to the CSR research cruises in the Ligurian Sea, this year the second project, the IDP, located in Greece and ongoing since 1991, is again open to participants directly through Tethys, too.
