Review of Cetacean Research & Rescue Unit (CRRU) by Christina Unger

This is as real as it gets

The CRRU is a great team, very dedicated and exactly the right mixture of being professional and fun. They welcomed me despite my obvious lack of any background in marine mammal science or conservation, and I learned an immense amount of things during my stay there -- not only about the cetaceans in the Moray Firth, how to photo ID them, what to do in case of a stranding, and how to steer a boat through rough waves, but also what it means to dedicate yourself to conservation. It was an intense, inspiring and fun experience, and without exaggeration one of the best things I ever did.
