VOLUNTEER IN WHALE RESEARCH PROGRAM IN ECUADOR

HUMPBACK WHALE RESEARCH INTERNSHIPS IN MACHALILLA NATIONAL PARK – ECUADOR The project Ballenas Jorobadas – Ecuador (Humpback Whales - Ecuador) is conducting a study on the demography of humpback whale and other cetaceans in the Machalilla National Park since 1997. The research center Pacific Whale Foundation-Ecuador with Palo Santo Travel is offering humpback whale research internships in Puerto Lopez - Machalilla National Park.   Between June and October, the marine area of the Machalilla National Park forms a reproductive or breeding area for humpback whales that migrate from the Antarctic to Ecuador. These whales are part of the humpback whale population of the Pacific southeast that feeds in the Antarctic and migrates around 7.000 km for mating and gives birth to their calf in Ecuador. The humpback whale population of the Southern Hemisphere that reproduces in Ecuadorian waters is estimated between 6.000 whales. Also, in this area, 15 cetacean species were identified during the last years, representing one of the highest known species diversities in South America.   The research has been carrying out in whale watching boats used as a research platform. The Pacific Whale Foundation has a catalog of more than 2,000 whales identified through marks or pigmentation of their tail, which are similar to a human fingerprint. Interns will actively contribute to this research effort, and will also collect data.   These internships are available for durations ranging from 1 to 4 weeks, from June to October.  Volunteers will be introduced to and participate in the research techniques involving boat-based photo identification, behavioral studies, and acoustics. No previous experience is required. There are approximately 10 whale-watching boats that will be used by the volunteers to go out at sea and study the whales every day.    #internship in Ecuador # internship with whale in Ecuador # volunteer for one day with whale in Ecuador
