Program Includes:

The cost for an 11 day internship in 2017 is GBP 1150, which will cover you for full board (all your accommodation and food costs), your full equipment needs, and all associated field costs during your stay with us. You'll simply need to arrange your own travel itinerary to us in Banff in NE Scotland (nearest airport Dyce, Aberdeen, approx. 1 1/2 hours from the field base by coach) plus any personal spending money.

Accommodation Options

  • Group living

Experience Required



The most important requirements for any participant are enthusiasm, the ability and willingness to learn and work under often difficult (but rewarding) field conditions, and the open-mindedness and sense of humour to work, live and communicate with other people of mixed nationality and background.

Please also note that, due to the nature of the work, participants will need to be both physically fit and healthy and, as a guideline, should be able to walk along steep coastal paths to reach land observation points.
