Whales Alive is a conservation organisation conducting long term research
and education on and about whales across Oceania. We are conducting a research
program on the island of Niue from 3 - 30th September 2011 and require volunteer vessels with at least a skipper
and preferably crew to be a platform for a small team of researchers. We will pay for fuel
and provisions and train interested crew on all aspects of whale research including photography, acoustics and genetics.
As it takes time to understand vessel operations around the whales for research purposes, boat time needed is preferably 1 week minimum, ideally 3-4 weeks with the same vessel/skipper would see the best out comes for the research.
If you are interested in learning
more about the program or know of any vessels going across the Pacific that may be available/interested, please contact me.
Where there's a whale, there's a way!
