Join an international team of volunteers and contribute to critical whale & dolphin conservation initiatives in the beautiful subtropical island archipelago - Canary Islands.

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.
