    • Employer: Navopatia Field Station
      Location: Sonora, Mexico
      Country: Mexico
      Last Date to Apply: 12/20/2019
      Open Until Filled: Yes

    Navopatia Field Station, a 501c-3 non profit dedicated to research, conservation, and education in Southern Sonora, is looking for highly motivated volunteer field interns for the 2020 winter field season (early January-mid March). Interns work closely with Mexican counterparts and staff on NFS research projects in Southern Sonora. Interns will gain experience in: aquatic and land bird surveys, vegetation sampling, small mammal census, data entry, mist-netting, bird banding, and route finding. Field crews are boarded at the Navopatia Field Station for an affordable fee, and have access to kayaks, libraries, and all other amenities. Please visit navopatia.org to learn more about the field station.

    Applicants should be undergraduates or early career professionals in good physical condition, willing to work in a thorn forest in the sun, and able to work well with others. Knowledge of Spanish is a plus, but not required. The area is little studied, remote, and a wildlife/plant rich region. If you have a strong interest in Natural History and wish to gain experience in biological fieldwork, please send a letter of interest and resume with 2-3 references to navopatia@gmail.com.
