Operation Wallacea request

This may be of interest  – if so, please, check the organisation’s website and make direct contact with them

(from Toby Farman of Operation Wallacea)

“I work for the organisation Operation Wallacea who carry out biodiversity monitoring in a number of different regions of the world during the months of June and July. We’re currently looking for ornithologists to join us to assist with bird surveys (either point counts or mist net surveys).

For example I’m personally recruiting for someone to join us in the Tarnava Mare region of Transylvania. It’s a great opportunity to encounter and ring European species that you rarely encounter within the UK such as Hawfinches, Hoopoe’s, Golden Orioles, Beeaters, Wrynecks and a quite frankly silly quantity of Red Backed Shrikes.

Costs on-site such as food and accommodation will be covered and a travel bursary would be available for experienced applicants. We are looking for individuals who have a desire to learn and enthusiasm for conducting field work in remote and potentially basic locations. Working with small groups of students is also an important aspect of this role as the research is funded by the attendance of students eager to learn research techniques.

We have positions available in Romania, Croatia, Dominica, Ecuador, Fiji, Guyana, Honduras, Indonesia, Madagascar, Mexico and Peru.

For more information or to apply individuals can send a CV or resume to me at toby.farman@opwall.com, or check out our jobs site at http://jobs.opwall.com/job/ornithologist/.”
