This is an exciting 9-month full time position to join our team and make a real difference to the future of endangered Hawaiian birds, in some of the most beautiful and challenging locations in the world. The main focus of the project is monitoring impacts to wildlife from power lines and artificial lighting, with a particular focus on finding ways to minimize these issues. This work is vital to the conservation of endangered bird species on Hawaii and will lead directly to immediate and real conservation action. Key duties involve conducting surveys of nocturnal seabird (particularly Newell’s Shearwater and Hawaiian Petrel) passage rates at power lines between breeding colonies and the sea, and native waterbirds at wetland areas, using visual surveys (with binocular, scope, night-vision and IR lights) and auditory surveys.
