Voluntariado remunerado con aves en las Bahamas

(¡Date prisa! El proceso de selección comienza el día 22 de marzo 2017)

This is an opportunity to work on a graduate research project focused on the endangered Bahama Swallow (Tachycineta cyaneoviridis).

We will be hiring one full-time position to begin in early April and conclude in mid-July. Primary responsibilities will involve locating and monitoring nests, conducting population and habitat surveys, and managing data. All fieldwork will take place on Great Abaco Island in The Bahamas. This position will provide opportunities to acquire new skills while working in a unique subtropical ecosystem. The Bahamas is a beautiful and exciting place to live and work, but applicants should expect long workdays with exposure to sun and heat, biting insects, and poisonwood (similar to poison ivy).

Qualifications: Must be over age 25 in order to drive the field vehicle. Applicant needs to be organized, motivated and able to work both in a team and independently. Priority will be given to applicants with biological field experience, particularly those who have experience with ornithological field techniques.

Compensation: All transportation, room and board will be provided throughout the field season. At the conclusion of the field season, the technician will receive a small stipend.
