Voluntariado con aves en Australia (gastos cubiertos)

We are looking foronefield assistant to help search nests of a small bird,
mangrove gerygone and large-billed gerygonein Darwin. The main objective
of this research is to gain a better understanding of the breeding ecology
of gerygone species, and the coevolution between gerygone species and
little bronze-cuckoo. Research will be conducted in Darwin, Australia. We
will be based inDarwin city, and travel to several sites. A volunteer
field assistant is needed from the beginning/mid of Marchto April/May
2020 for two months. The exact datesareflexible but need to be around
this time.

Overall duties will include nest searching and monitoring, recording
begging calls and adult calls for cuckoos, and data entry. Previous
experience with fieldwork is highly desired, and nest searching experience
is also preferred, but not required. The large-bill gerygone build
nests over the water, and the height of nests varies from 1m to 5m. The
mangrovegerygone's habitat is open salt flats. The study site is rugged,
hot, and venomous snakes and ticks are quite common. Working days are
long, with early starts, six days a week. Therefore, applicants must
have good physical fitness to walk along the creek with a heavy ladder,
withstand harsh conditions at the site, and maintain an energetic
attitude despite long hours in hot and humid conditions. Work schedules
and duties will vary, so flexibility is a must. Applicants should work
well alone and in a small group and have a sense of direction to work
in remote areas. Previous experience with fieldwork is highly desired,
and nest searching experience is also preferred, but a positive attitude
is much more important than tons of field experience.

Housing will be provided, and you can get reimbursed for food and flights
up to $750 AUD per month and you will enjoy fantastic wildlife viewing
opportunities in Darwin.

To apply, send a cover letter detailing interests, previous relevant
field research experience, dates of availability and a CV as well as
a list of names and contact information for 2 referees to Hee-Jin Noh

Please feel free to enquire with any questions related to the application
process or on the project in general.
