CIRCÉ (Conservation, Information and Research on Cetaceans) is a non-profit 
organization which objectives are not only to conduct research on cetaceans, but 
also to actively participate in increasing awareness and education of the public on 
the marine environment. For this reason, we have chosen to welcome research 
volunteers onboard

CIRCE's vessel to assist the scientific crew in their studies on the cetaceans 
in the Strait of Gibraltar and the Gulf of Cadiz.

We are looking for volunteers from the 26th of November to the 15th of 
December, to help us in a research project. The project aims is to investigate 
the cetacean population inhabiting the Gulf of Cadiz. This survey will be a 
visual and acoustic survey, and the target species are common dolphins, 
bottlenose dolphins, harbour porpoises and killer whales. During this survey, 
all the crew will be onboard the research vessel Elsa, and will live onboard 
the vessel.

The volunteers will participate in the field and laboratory activities of the 

Main tasks:

-Conduct boat-based line transect surveys.
-Collect data on cetacean sightings and weather conditions.
-Data entry for cetacean sightings.
-Assist with photo-ID work and analysis
-Assist with the porpoise detector equipment.

No specific qualities are required, just a willing hand and a keen interest so 
that everyone has an enjoyable and convivial experience.

There is no compensation for this volunteer position and the successful 
applicants will be responsible for their food expenses during the time of the 
volunteering. Volunteers must arrange their own transportation to and from the 
research base in Pelayo (Algeciras). The volunteers can stay in CIRCE's Centre.

Detailed information of CIRCE can be found in the following web page:
