The AWF is committed to developing knowledge and thinking across the range of its activities.
Volunteers, academics and research students are welcome to submit ideas for further research. Our
protocol with research projects is that a three way agreement is reached between the researcher,
sending institution and the AWF before arrival so that we can satisfy ourselves that the research
goals are attainable within the remit of our activities.
In general we have an open access policy to our research data. For the academic year commencing
September 2012, we will have data available through a Team Drop Box facility
for all to access.
This will include three main sections: Research
(Tenerife: Pilot Whale fin shots, data spread-sheets,
fin catalogue; Bottlenose Dolphin -fin shots, data spread-sheets, fin catalogue; Underwater video
footage, acoustics and data sheets on Bottlenose Dolphins; Migrating species datasheets) hese
datasets cover two decades of work and over 13,000 observations; Case Study materials
