Marine Mammal Volunteer Position, Kaikoura, New Zealand

A volunteer is required to assist with an ongoing study investigating the occurrence, residency and movement of marine mammals (primarily leopard seals) around New Zealand. This work involves desktop research including data entry and photo-identification.

This project is part of the ongoing research for the Marine Megafauna Group at the National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research and in collaboration with LeopardSeals.Org.

March - September 2020.

A minimum commitment of three months is required and priority will be given to those who can commit for longer periods. During these months the volunteer must be available full-time (i.e. 38 hours per week), however work hours can be flexible to accommodate part-time work if desired.
