The core volunteer programme runs throughout the year from the research station in Arona, Tenerife. This facility is a charming old Canarian farmhouse which, with three adjacent modern apartments, can accommodate around 35 volunteers at any one time.

Think Youth Hostel, not Hotel.

Volunteers will work from two main bases with numerous options for further experience.

  1. On the whale watching boats working as research guides, 3-4 days per week
  2. In the research room processing, analysing and interpreting data.


Our core goal is to raise awareness of threats facing whales and dolphins across the Atlantic Ocean.

There are no fixed start dates on this programme, join when convenient to you.

We only want volunteers with a positiveĀ attitude.

Anybody is welcome as a volunteer, as long as they are hard-working, positive and committed to making a difference.
