Voluntariado con aves en Perú

VOLUNTEER RESEARCH ASSISTANTS (2) needed from late May to the end of Jul
to assist PhD student with bird survey work in Peru's High Andes. We
will drive to existing transects by four-wheel drive in central and
southern Peru and survey bird communities in peat bogs. This is the
domain of the critically endangered White-bellied Cinclodes (Cinclodes
palliatus), the near threatened Diademed Sandpiper-Plover (Phegornis
mitchellii), and approximately 120 additional species. Ridiculously
amazing scenery is tempered by nightly temperatures dipping well below
freezing. We'll camp out approximately 50% of the time and stay in
rustic hotels otherwise. The main duty is performing transects in
mountain peat bogs at very high elevation (4300-5100 m) identifying and
quantifying all birds to species. Data entry and vegetation work is also
required. Ideal applicants will be aspiring field ornithologists that
are highly motivated to learn these species by sight before arrival,
speak Spanish, are physically fit, experienced camper, first aid/CPR
certified, and can collect accurate data independently. Assistants will
cover transportation to Lima, Peru and I'll cover basic expenses
including transportation, room, board, and laundry during the project.
Please send a resume or CV highlighting your experience, background, and
qualifications as well as contact information for 3 references to
Richard E. Gibbons ASAP. (EM:: rgibbo3 AT lsu.edu). For more information
