Unique research opportunity: Dolphin calf behavioural development

We have unique LAST-MINUTE research opportunities around the birth of a dolphin calf at the Dolphinarium in Harderwijk, the Netherlands! 

Within the next few weeks we hope to welcome a baby dolphin into our group of experienced adult females and two juveniles, who are living in our natural North Sea lagoon. 

Research projects will focus on the development of social and play behaviour, maternal behaviours and the behaviour of the "aunts" towards the calf. 

We are looking for a candidate who has experience in behavioural observations, is available on short notice and is looking to gain valuable research experience on marine mammals. 

Feel free to contact me if you are interested or if you'd like to know more. 

Kind regards,

Dennis Vink
