Join our research team

Join the Ionian Dolphin Project: watch and study dolphins and monk seals in the wild to ensure their conservation.

During your stay with us you will be part of a scientific team working on the study and conservation of dolphins and the Mediterranean monk seal. You will work side-by-side with experienced researchers and conduct daily surveys at sea. Get to observe lots of dolphins in their natural environment, to know them, and actively contribute to field data collection. Once back at the field station, you will be helping download scientific data and process digital photos (photoidentification).

Our citizen-science program is managed by the Tethys Research Institute. In the link below you will find all necessary information on the current dates, participation fees and other practical information.


Your donation to the Ionian Dolphin Project, no matter how much, will help us continue our long-term research, education, and conservation programs. We simply cannot do this work without the occasional support from people like you, people who care.

If you can donate, please do and we guarantee you that we will make the best possible use of your contribution. If you cannot, thanks any way! You can still help us by talking about the Ionian Dolphin Project to family, friends and other people who may share our passion towards the marine environment and the conservation of their most charismatic inhabitants.
