Book a Cetacean Sanctuary Research expedition
Find here detailed information for participating in a team in Italy, in the north-western Mediterranean, leaving from Sanremo. Be part of the research project: volunteers are a valuable support in the fieldwork.
Research is conducted aboard the 21-mt motorsailer “Pelagos“, in the Ligurian Sea from May to September, departures each monday from Sanremo (Italy).
The participants’ contribution not only represents the main funding source for the research; citisen scientists are also a valuable support to the researchers and they are expected to help in all aspects of the fieldwork, noting that they are not just whale watching but that they are part of a scientific project.
With the Cetacean Sanctuary Research (CSR) Project works a highly qualified international team. Each cruise has one experienced Principal Investigator, one or more further researchers, and one assistant or student.
Life on board and the daily schedule may vary on the basis of sea state, weather conditions and research priorities.
