YOU can advance tropical marine research
MarAlliance invites you to immerse yourself in once-in-a-lifetime experiences among the incredible waters off of Belize, Honduras, Mexico, Cabo Verde and Panama. You choose the adventure that speaks to your heart. Join the team of marine biologists, guides and fishers for an unforgettable experience helping to research critically endangered sharks, rays, turtles and other charismatic marine megafauna. You will be on the front line of marine megafauna monitoring and directly contribute to the conservation of these iconic species within ocean waters.
Dr. Rachel Graham and her team will train you to be directly involved in aspects of field work, depending on the adventure. These skills might include launching Baited Remote Underwater Videos (BRUVs), conducting in-water snorkel surveys, setting longlines with hands-on work to capture, measuring and tagging sharks, and mega-planktivore (whale shark & manta rays) monitoring, where you will swim with and witness satellite tagging of the biggest fish in the world!
The researchers at MarAlliance are excited to have the opportunity to share their findings with you and the field work will be complimented by presentations by our research team during the course of your time together.
