Description

The Sea Search group is a collective of scientists and students with a strong academic background in the area of marine mammal science. Our primary focus is the production of peer-reviewed scientific research and student training. We also provide specialist consultancy services and work with industry and government to promote conservation through effective management. The Sea Search Africa volunteer programme is aimed at students and graduates looking for long term placements to develop analytical skills, conduct student projects or theses and experience real research.


Typical activities volunteers/students will gain experience in:

- Data processing and analysis

- Photo identification of animals

- Shore based tracking of animals

- Small boat work


We require volunteers to commit to a minimum of a 1 month placement up to a maximum of 6 months.


Volunteer positions are open to current students (BSc or MSc) studying towards a Biology or Zoology related degree and recent graduates looking to gain research experience. Volunteers are expected to approach their duties with a mature and responsible attitude.
