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.
Meet whales and dolphins
We need enthusiastic people willing to help with the collection of data and various aspects of the fieldwork. Nevertheless no particular skills or scientific or nautical experience are required to participants: it takes only good will and enthusiasm to make a difference.
2013 Fees lowered
Willing to facilitate the participation to research cruises to motivated people and students and taking into account the situation of widespread crisis, the Tethys Research Institute decided to lower participation fees for 2013 (from 10% to 15% according to the period).
The cruise CSR_10 (July 15th – 21st) is available at 702€ instead of 866€. Volunteers interested in participating, please send a mail asap.
Spaces will be assigned on a first in-first served basis.
