Asistente en Monteverde, Costa Rica

VOLUNTEER TROPICAL RESEARCH ASSISSTANT in Monteverde, Costa Rica. The work will be monitoring and assessment of reforestation areas at the Cloud Forest School, where students in grades K to 11 have been reforesting abandoned pastures to restore the tropical cloud forest. I am seeking someone to assist with tree measurements, counting seedlings, assessing ground cover, and data entry. The assistant will also work with and help mentor high school students on the project. There is also the opportunity to monitor the bird community in terms of diversity and abundance in the reforestation areas. The assistant must have field experience, bird identification skills, and be able to work independently. Pay is not available, but this is an ideal opportunity to develop an independent project or be a co-author on a publication. The assistant is needed in early to mid March for two to three months.
