1996 Volunteer Opportunities

BCI is supporting two field research projects in the summer of 1996, and volunteer field assistants are needed for both. All research equipment and training is provided; however, previous field experience is desirable. Volunteers must be in excellent physical condition and able to cope with strenuous mountain hiking, temperature extremes, long hours, and high altitudes. For more information, contact the appropriate coordinator listed below.

Volunteers should be able to hike through rugged terrain and work for long hours. Rabies pre-exposure vaccinations are required to assist biologists with netting and handling bats. Reimbursement for vaccination, as well as housing, vehicles, and a per diem are provided.
