Marine mammal field volunteer 

Opportunity Description:
Volunteer positions are available to help an on-going field study on
California sea lions in the Gulf of California, Mexico. The project is
conducted through Arizona State University and trips depart from
Phoenix, AZ. Field work entails collecting detailed behavioral data on
tagged and untagged sea lions at rookeries, conducting population
censuses, assisting with camp duties, and more. 

Field conditions are extreme: it is VERY hot and there are only limited
opportunities to swim. Primitive camping in field. Must have own tent,
binoculars, basic camping/field gear, keen eye, and positive attitude.
Spanish a plus. Details from previous field seasons can be found at:
http://www.public.asu.edu/~lrgerbe/.

Applicants will be chosen based on past experience and ability to attend
both field trips and training in Phoenix before the first trip. Trip
dates are 15-25 of June and July and training is 12-13 of June.
Volunteers responsible for transport to/from Phoenix and spending money
en route to field site.  Field expenses are covered by project and
housing in Phoenix immediately before/after each trip may be arranged.

This is a great opportunity to gain experience on behavioral research of
marine mammals.  Please send resume and list of 2-3 references via email
if interested.
