Training will be provided as necessary.

Volunteers will ideally be obtaining or recently qualified in a relevant science degree e.g. Marine Biology, though exceptions may be made for people with suitable experience. Volunteers should also have a strong interest in marine life, the environment and conservation and be enthusiastic, responsible and reliable. Applicants must be aged 18 or over.
