Field assistant for the Black-eared Miner

The Black-eared Miner is one of Australia's most threatened species. With
good recent rains and warm weather the researchers are anticipating another
good breeding season this spring.

With the spring/summer field season drawing near a unique opportunity is
again available for volunteer Field Assistants to play an active role in the
recovery efforts for the Black-eared Miner. Field Assistants will assist in
surveys at established colonies, searches for new colonies, field
observations and banding of miners. For the majority of the field season
researchers will be based in South Australia at Gluepot Reserve, however
shorter excursions to the Victorian and SW NSW mallee will be made to
monitor existing sites and search for new colonies. At Gluepot accommodation
is in comfortable shearers quarters however whilst in Vic and NSW some
camping will be required. Food costs will be covered. 

Volunteers need to be easy going, enjoy working in an isolated and
challenging environment, able to work co-operatively and under direction in
a team. Persons with an observant nature and ability to take detailed field
notes would be well suited. Any fieldwork or camping and outdoors experience
would be advantageous although this is not considered essential. If
interested send a cover letter and a brief resume to the address below;
