With Delfini del Ponente is possible to partake in an internship of 30 days (minimum stay) based in Imperia (Ligurian region), right in the centre of the International “Pelagos” Sanctuary for the protection of Cetaceans. We developed a programme that include specific training on cetaceans studies and other marine fauna. This programme is aimed at young people who intend to pursue a career as marine biologists/researchers or who have a strong interest in undertaking an experience in this field of science. Not only we will go out at sea to conduct monitoring surveys of dolphins and seabirds, but we will also conduct data analysis, and photo-identification of bottlenose dolphins’ dorsal fins and use specific software. Lectures on specific topics will also be given: on marine mammals, marine fauna and the main research techniques used in this field. We have agreements with multiple Universities to allow students to conduct their thesis and acquire formative credits with us.
