Voluntariado en Alaska

VOLUNTEER FIELD ASSISTANT sought to assist with cooperative study of
KITTLITZ'S MURRELET use of upland habitat between 19 May and 8 Aug.
Incumbent should be very fit, enjoy camping and strenuous hikes in
mountainous terrain, and relish isolated duty in a hostile environment.
Incumbent will spend the first 2 weeks involved in orientation, safety
training, and preparation for field deployment. During the following 6-8
weeks, volunteers and refuge biologists will conduct the study out of a
remote camp located in a mountain valley in southwestern Kodiak Island.
A final week will be spent in Kodiak summarizing records, debriefing
staff, and storing field gear. Study tasks will include: recording
audio-visual observations of murrelets at various inland sites;
searching for nests and monitoring nesting biology; and maintaining a
field journal. Ideal candidate will have experience in conducting inland
surveys for marbled murrelets, camping in extreme and isolated
conditions, and working in bear country. The Fish and Wildlife Service
will pay round-trip airfare to Kodiak; provide housing and pay for meals
in Kodiak; and pay all field costs except personal clothing. To apply,
please send resume, emails and phone numbers for 3 references, and a
brief introduction to BILL PYLE, Kodiak NWR (EM: Bill_Pyle AT fws.gov;
