In 2011, the South Pacific Whale Research Consortium is again looking for boats to host scientists to carry out whale monitoring around Niue. Another whale monitoring project out of Fiji is also looking for 8-10 yachts and interested persons to help spotting and photographing the whales.
The Consortium will be hosting a Reef Check training course (coral reef monitoring) around the end of May in Port Vila, Vanuatu. Any members, especially those with cruising yachts, are welcome to take the course. Other yachts can then support the Vanuatu expeditions or act as follow-up boats in the Solomon Islands and Papua New Guinea.
Any cruiser interested in taking part should email OceanWatch at email@example.com.
