We are seeking a limited number of volunteers to conduct field work in Cape Arid National Park to assist with the conservation of the Western Ground Parrot.
The first round of fieldwork is scheduled for 17 – 26th March.
Volunteers will be working and camping with Department of Biodiversity Conservation and Attractions (DBCA) staff but are required to be self-sufficient i.e. provide own transport to Cape Arid, camping equipment, cooking equipment and food.
Under the direction of DBCA and Birdlife staff, volunteers will be hiking through pristine ground parrot habitat to service and deploy camera traps and autonomous recording units (ARUs), so a moderate to good level of fitness is required. Some navigational skills (GPS) are desirable, but not essential. Fieldwork also involves conducting listening surveys so reasonable hearing ability is desirable. On-site inductions and training will be provided prior to any fieldwork being undertaken.
If you are interested in joining us, fit the above criteria and like the idea of working on the conservation of a critically endangered parrot, with a small, dedicated team in a remote and beautiful part of the state please provide the following to firstname.lastname@example.org
- A current CV and/or description of relevant experience
- Availability for March
- And please let us know if you are already a registered volunteer with DBCA
