More Information 

Join this ethical whale and dolphin conservation based in Tenerife, Canary Islands which is around 3-5 hours away from most big cities in Europe. 

This project aims to raise awareness around unsustainable tourism practices that pose a threat on the 20-28 species of dolphin and whale species.

A big portion of your project is spent educating tourists on ethical watching tours, taking photographs and recording numbers and behaviors of the whale and dolphins, beach cleans and documenting any environmental impacts that may affect overall health of marine life in the area. 

All data collected is used by local organizations to make important decisions about whether there is a need for environmental policies to protect the wild and marine life.

This program includes an optional marine conservation online courses which must be completed in order to obtain a certificate offered in partnership with the University of Richmond in the United States.

Cost

Since we opened our doors in 1998, we have spent over 65% of all funds directly on our projects.  It is our mission to support field operations in the long term.  Rather than abandon programs that recruit fewer volunteers we strategically invest from our fully staffed sites to help maintain our presence across the globe. The remaining 35% that is not directly invested in our programs covers the cost of volunteer recruitment, the operations of our head office.
