bioacoustics internship
My name is Cecilia, and I have spent the past 3 months as an intern at the Archipelagos Institute of Marine Conservation. During my internship, I have deepened my knowledge in the field of bioacoustics through assisting other interns with their personal projects. The reason as to why I chose to not start a new

collecting samples of Posidonia oceanica and Halophila stipulacea seagrass
My name is Alexandra Gimblett, and I am currently studying Marine and Freshwater Biology BSc at Aberystwyth University. While on my year in industry I chose to spend six months with Archipelagos Institute of Marine Conservation collecting samples of Posidonia oceanica and Halophila stipulacea seagrass in order to later perform DNA analysis at my university.
intern experience marine conservation
As a marine researcher recently receiving my B.Sc. in Marine Science, I was eager to get more experience in the field. When I graduated, I discovered Archipelagos and knew it would provide me with the perfect remote location where I can research an area that is not well understood or explored. Therefore, I made the

I’m Coral, an undergraduate in Marine Geography at Cardiff University, Wales. I chose to do an on-site internship at Archipelagos Institute of Marine Conservation as part of my professional placement year. I lived and worked at the Research Bases of “Archipelagos Institute” on the island of Lipsi from September 2021 to May 2022. The main
My name is Lieza and I am currently in the final year of my studies in Agro – and Biotechnology, specialising in Plant Management. All the way from Belgium, I joined the Terrestrial Research and Conservation at Archipelagos on the island of Lipsi from mid-February until mid-May 2022. My project was to assess the butterfly

Sea turtles of the Aegean Sea

The Aegean Sea welcomes three of the seven species of marine turtles that are found worldwide, namely the loggerhead turtle (Caretta caretta), the green turtle (Chelonia mydas) and the leatherback turtle (Dermochelys coriacea). The leatherback’s characteristic shell makes it easily recognisable, whereas the green turtle and loggerhead turtle are more difficult to distinguish.   The

Marine Mammal Behaviour Research

  The rapid decline of several marine mammal species such as dolphins and whales is a growing problem on a global scale. Losses in abundance have been especially important in the Mediterranean, a biodiversity hotspot which supports a diverse range of marine ecosystems. Marine mammals are threatened by various human activities and their effects, such
During the research expeditions over the Ikaria Trench, the Archipelagos’ marine mammal team aim to gather data on the species living over this important hotspot, to increase our knowledge on their behaviour, distribution and density. Weather-allowing, boat surveys extend to  further areas during multiple-day research expeditions.  The surveys usually occur between the islands of Ikaria,
My name is Liam P. Kennedy. I am from Annapolis, Maryland, U.S.A. and I am currently pursuing my Bachelors in Environmental Studies & Sciences: Geographic Information Systems (GIS) at Towson University. Currently, I am on a summer placement with Archipelagos, from June 2021 until late August 2021. My project at Archipelagos is to create maps
