Volunteers will need to be prepared for early mornings 6 days a week, long hours in tropical conditions (including wading through creeks and long walks over rocky and hilly terrain), sharing cooking duties, living and working in a small team and have a good work ethic. Volunteers will need to be physically fit and have a driver’s license. Desirable qualifications include experience with behavioral studies and re-sighting color banded birds.
