About

In September 2017, The Cambodian Dolphin Project was established.
The initiative was formed through a collaboration between two NGOs,
Marine Conservation Cambodia, and the DMAD Marine Mammals
Research Association. Now the project is working closely with the
Dolphin and Development Division of Cambodia's Fisheries
Administration.

The project has an initial 18-month timeline, however it is likely a
continued monitoring program will be established after this. The initial
aim is to collect data on abundance, distribution and residency to
delineate and protect critical habitats for the Irrawaddy dolphin in
Cambodia's Kep Archipelago.

The research team is in the field collecting behavioral data 4 times a
week, with the rest of the time spent entering the findings, and turning
these findings into reports and publications. There is also an education
and outreach focus, trying to engage local scientists and the local
community.

The project is based within Marine Conservation Cambodia's
headquarters, on the isalnd of Koh Ach Seh, in Cambodia's Kep
Archipelago.

Now, we are looking for enthusiastic, motivated and hard-working
individuals to join our dolphin research team. The positions are ideal for
students or post grads who wish to gain experience in the cetacean
research field.

The positions are unpaid
and require a contribution
fee of US$300/week to
cover accommodation,
food and diving.

Spring and Summer places
are available.

We are looking for interns
who can commit 3 months
to the project, however
shorter durations may be
considered for exceptional
candidates.

if interested, please send a
cover letter and CV to
cambodiadolphinproject@
gmail.com. In your covering
letter, please state the
dates for which you wish to
intern.
