Oferta de voluntariado: Censos de anfibios en Corea del Sur

toads (Bufo gargarizans), Brown frogs (Rana uenoi), Gensan salamanders (Hynobius leechii) and Suweon Treefrogs (Dryophytes suweonensis). This project is under the responsibility of Pr. Jang Yikweon from Ewha W. University, Seoul, South-Korea.

The successful assistant should have a very strong interest in
amphibians and/or climate change, and general ecology. In addition,
he/she should be a good driver, as the monitoring requires long driving

require a heavy time commitment, at times when humans, and amphibians,
are usually socially active. This project is recommended to recently

an inquiry email.

Flights to and from Korea will be at the expense of the assistant, but
