I hope you don't mind me contacting you directly. I am from the organisation Operation Wallacea and I was very much hoping you could assist me with passing on information for a number of tropical ornithological roles we have available for this summer. I would really appreciate it if you could distribute the information below to any interested individuals, groups and through any social media channels you use regularly.
If you have any queries about the roles available, please do not hesitate in contacting me. Thank you so much for your help in advance.
Operation Wallacea is a network of academics from European and North American universities, who design and implement biodiversity and conservation management research programmes across 15 research sites worldwide. We are currently recruiting ornithologists available for between 4-8 weeks within the months of June and early August. Possible locations include: Peru, Fiji, Dominica and Ecuador. Information on all our sites is available on our website.
The position will involve carrying out ornithological surveys as part of a large scale monitoring programme. Applicants should have experience of working in the field, biological undergraduate degree level or higher (or other relevant experience), point count, bird mist netting and handling experience.
In return, successful applicants receive full accommodation and food on site, potential current and future research opportunities, networking and skills development, flight bursaries for more experienced scientists, and of course the opportunity to contribute towards long-term conservation efforts.
