Opportunity for volunteer interns

Cascadia Research is a non-profit research and education organization based in Olympia, Washington. Interns are sought to work on a number of projects, including long-term research studies of humpback, blue, and gray whales (primary goals examination of distribution, movements, stock structure, and abundance), killer whales (primary goal examining feeding habits of individuals in the "southern resident" population), and Hawaiian odontocetes (primary goals examination of stock structure, diving behavior and abundance). Interns would assist with aspects of the field work, photographic identification of individual animals, and data compilation. Interns would spend about 50% of time assisting with matching of photographic identifications, 25% assisting with field work (including potential for some longer cruises), and 25% other office tasks. Depending on time of year, interns would also assist with responding to strandings of whales and pinnipeds.
Interns would be responsible for housing and meals in Olympia, although travel and meals would be covered during longer field expeditions. Having a car would be beneficial to participating in some field activities. Interns would be expected to work full time for a period of about 3-4 months.
