Call for Volunteers

In 2020 we managed to make it through a Corona struck season and still got a lot done! For 2021 we hope to do even better!

That’s why we are currently looking for people who are interested in joining our team behind the scenes, helping out with Grant writing, Video editing as well as the data analysis of this year’s data along with the further development of methods for the next season to come.

While we are a small NGO that (at this stage) is running entirely powered by people donating their time we can’t pay a salary but can offer a spot onboard for people who invest their time during the offseason.

We will head back out to sea again in April 2021 and will happily welcome everyone else as well – more information on schedule, etc yet to come.
For more information please get in touch via mail to info@projectmanaia.at
