    The field teams are very much run in the form of a training / educational programme, with formal lectures, seminars and presentations by the research team, practical training in field methodologies and data collection and analysis, and direct participation in the research, education and rescue work of this dynamic and outgoing conservation charity (for publication list, see http://www.crru.org.uk/publications.asp).
    The cost foran 11 day internship in 2014 is 895 GBP, and this 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 in the heritage fishing village of Gardenstown in Banff. You'll simply need to arrange your own travel itinerary to us in Banffshire, northeast Scotland (nearest airport Dyce, Aberdeen, approx. 1½ hours from the field base by coach) plus any personal spending money.

    For further details please visit the CRRU project page at www.crru.org.uk/join_the_team.asp, or email us directly at info@... for further information and a pdf copy of the project briefing and booking/application form.

    We look forward to hearing from you

    On behalf of the CRRU team
