Get in touch with orca research projects from around the world, both in your home country (if there are any) and internationally. Send them an email which tells them a little bit about yourself, why you are passionate about orca and what you have achieved academically and practically so far or are planning to achieve at a future date. Ask them if they have an internship programme or if they are willing to take on volunteers. Let them know what skills and strengths you could bring to the project and what you are hoping to learn from them. You will find contact details for most projects on their respective websites.
You can also write to research projects which work with other cetacean (whale, dolphin and porpoise) species and marine mammals. It is all worthwhile experience and will count toward your future career.
And remember - you can get involved with research projects online by interacting and participating on social networking pages. By doing this, you will get to know the orca research projects and the individuals who work for them. It is also a great way to talk with like-minded people and learn about orca!
