SORRY – This information session is now full. Please continue to check our website and facebook for the dates of the next sessions.
We often have people enquiring about volunteering at DRI. Here’s your chance to find out more about what marine biologists actually do. Our next information day is Wednesday, 25th January at our office in Hastings. Interested people are welcome to attend the 10am session, and university students are invited to attend the 2pm session.
Bookings are essential, and entry is by gold coin donation. Parents of school-aged students must include themselves in the booking and attend the session with their children. Get further details on 5979 7100.
We know it can be difficult to gain experience in, or even exposure to, dolphin and whale research. This can be especially so for high school students who hope to study marine biology at university and would like a ‘taste’ of what the work is actually like. To help make sense of the career path of a marine biologist, DRI’s Research Director will be running group information sessions through the year for interested members of the general public, and specifically for students who are currently studying science at university. The next sessions after this one will be advertised on the DRI Facebook page and on our website.
DRI values the contribution of our volunteers; we currently have a number of long-term research assistants and an almost full team of dedicated community monitoring project volunteers. As ever, there are always opportunities for further volunteer positions becoming available for either program. Come along to one of our information sessions and find out more for yourself, or your budding marine biologist.
Thank you for your interest. Remember, you can also actively support our amazing dolphins in a tangible way by donating to DRI.
