Update from our volunteer vacation / conservation holiday protecting whales, dolphins and turtles around the Azores archipelago (www.biosphere-expeditions.org/azores)

Hello and welcome from HQ to the first Azores diary entry. We’re packing up and getting ready for you. Our Azores expedition has been running for many years, so most things are in Horta and the expedition packed up looks very small. Crucial bits include a couple of cameras and laptops (which are with our scientist in Horta year-round) for gathering and entering data, as well as some snazzy Swarovski binoculars (new this year and being shipped soon) for spotting whale blows and the animals themselves – that is if you don’t get seasick looking through them 😉

Staff with you will be Alisa and Lisa as per you dossier. You will also have Vera Menges on the first slot. Vera will soon start as our resident biologist in Namibia and before she goes to Africa will spend a week or so with you on the Azores to see what the jobs of expedition leader and expedition scientist entail.

Alisa will soon send you a video diary entry from the USA, where she is getting ready, and here is a video of Lisa and our research

See you soon in Horta!
