We are presently organising our third winter scientific expedition to the
Auckland Islands of New zealand to continue our research on southern
right whales.  We are lookin g for volunteers to assist on the 16 to 21
days long field trip and contribute to the costs of the charter.  The trip
departs from Invercargill, New Zealand, in late July aboa rd a charter
vessel licensed for the subantarctic seas.  It is a 2 to 3 day transit
time to the subantarctic islands then we remain aboard the boat in a quiet
harbour for the duration of field work.

Volunteers should have some experience working with cetaceans.
This project involves: photo-identification, collection of skin samples
and behavioural monitoring.

The estimated cost for each berth depends on the total number of
participants (maximum of 6 volunteers with a team of 3 researchers) but
is estimated at US$3,800.

People interested in volunteering on this project are invited to contact
us as soon as possible for further details.
