In order to conduct high impact research of ethical and scientific merit, and that contribute to biodiversity conservation, the NZG has established the Research Ethics and Scientific Committee (RESC) that meets once every month to assess research project proposals.

To conduct research at the NZG, please contact the Research Coordinator (Lufuno Netshifhefhe). You first have to contact the Research Coordinator to get a project number before completing any of the application documents.

Elephant Seals can hold their breath for up TWO HOURS! But how? Well, seals have more blood in their bodies than any other animal and, since oxygen is stored and carried around the body in blood, it allows them to hold their breath for an extra long time.
