I'm a Deaf grad student studying sea turtle feeding ecology on the Big Island and I'm seeking for two volunteers to help with 2+months of field work sometime from mid-May to mid-August.
Duties include assisting with satellite unit deployment and tissue sampling, monitoring nests, handling and tagging turtles, and rescuing stranded hatchlings. Assistants must be able to hike several miles to nesting sites, camp in remote areas, function with little sleep (5/6 hours a night), and communicate fluently in ASL. This is a good opportunity for conservation science fanatics to get some field experience. Contact Shannon at firstname.lastname@example.org for an application. Application is due March 1st, 2008.
