Right Whale Aerial Survey Observers

Wildlife Trust


Wildlife Trust, a non-profit international research and conservation
organization, is seeking temporary, seasonal aerial observers for marine
mammal surveys from November 2008 through April 2009.  These observer
positions are in anticipation of research activities to be conducted in the
southeast United States, specifically coastal Georgia and South Carolina.
Anticipated research would require observers to fly up to four days per
week, up to eight hours per day in a small, twin engine, high wing aircraft
primarily to locate North Atlantic right whales in the Southeast U.S.
calving ground.  Surveys will be flown every day, weather permitting, and
observers must be willing to work weekends and holidays during the survey
period.  Observers will be required to participate in aviation and marine
safety and survival training.


This is a temporary, 40 hour/week position at a salary rate of $14/hr.
Health benefits are not provided with this position.  Housing will be
provided for the duration of the project.  These positions are contingent
upon funding.



Applicants must be experienced in database entry and word processing and
preferably other computer applications.  The ability to live and work well
in a team environment and withstand up to 8 hours per day in a small
aircraft is required.  Previous aerial or marine mammal survey experience
and experience in photo-identification of large cetaceans is strongly
desired.  We are currently accepting applications from US citizens and
permanent residents.
