    New England salt marshes provide critical habitat for a number of plant and animal species, many of high conservation value. Recently, the Rhode Island National Wildlife Refuge Complex restored degraded saltmarsh habitat at two of its refuges - John H. Chafee and Sachuest NWR. Interns will assist with monitoring activities. Responsibilities include but are not limited to saltmarsh sparrow monitoring (surveys, nest searching, mist-netting), vegetation, soil salinity, water table level monitoring and eelgrass surveys. Experience with mist-netting songbirds, eastern songbird bird identification, saltmarsh plant identification, and kayaking preferred but not required. Applicants must possess the ability to work outdoors in all types of weather conditions, especially heat and humidity; to endure biting insects; to work well with others; and be in good physical shape and able to hike over uneven terrain while carrying equipment. Applicants also must possess a valid driver’s license and be willing to assist with other refuge projects (e.g. invasive plant removal, Piping Plover monitoring).

    Two positions are available from May 13 to September 27 (some flexibility for the start and end date exists). Compensation $215/wk plus possible housing. Send letter of interest, resume and contact information for 3 references to John Veale, 50 Bend Road, Charlestown, RI 02813 OR email materials to John_Veale@fws.gov.  Please include “Salt Marsh Internship 2019” in the subject line of your email.  Application deadline is February 1.
