    GALAPAGOS ISLANDS--NAZCA BOOBIES. Three volunteer field assistants needed mid-March 2019 to early May 2019 (dates will become firm in January) for work on breeding biology of Nazca boobies on Espanola Island, Galapagos, Ecuador. The assistant will join a group totaling four continuing a 36-year study of this species. Majority of the work will be identifying banded parents at nests, handling and banding large nestlings and adults, and marking nests, 7-10 hrs per day of fascinating work in an incredible place. The group will live in tents and a primitive field camp on this uninhabited island, a day's boat ride from the nearest civilization. A minor amount of the work will be band resights of waved albatrosses. Requirements: patience (you may be sitting at one nest for days on end toward the end of the trip!), physical fitness, tolerance of heat and sun, cheerful can-do attitude, attention to detail. Previous field experience required, Spanish desirable but not required. All expenses paid, including travel from your home base. No salary. These positions will be filled by late-January, applications will be evaluated as they arrive. Please email a one-page cover letter and contact information for three references, with c.v. attached, to DR. DAVE ANDERSON at Wake Forest University (EM: boobytech@gmail.com).
