We will give lectures and presentations about our work as cetacean scientists and on marine conservation issues, as well as involve you in informal and friendly round table discussions. We have much to learn from each other.
IDP researchers are extensively experienced in giving presentations to non-specialist audiences, and can master a series of lectures taking advantage of PowerPoint presentations, short videos, and other entertaining visual tools. Interactivity will be key, and you will always be invited to participate by answering questions, reporting your own experiences and sharing your opinions with others.
Quality data collection will be ensured through careful training of volunteers and by communicating to you the importance of recording unbiased data. If you feel uneasy with a given task, or find it too demanding, you will be assigned to another task or given more specific training, depending on the circumstances.
