The position of Conservation Biologist on the Echo Parakeet project is a unique opportunity to join a dynamic field team, and contribute to the conservation of what was formerly considered the rarest parakeet in the world.
The project has been one of the most intensive and successful parakeet conservation projects ever conducted.
The position offers the successful applicant the opportunity to learn a wide range of field skills relating to the monitoring and management of the species, some of which include nest box construction / maintenance and bird handling (ringing, blood sample collection and collection of morphometric measurements).
This is an exciting opportunity to work with a species and a project that is known internationally amongst conservationists and interact with conservation biologists from around the world.
We regularly run talks and presentations given both by visiting scientists and our own staff where you will learn about other conservation recovery projects run by the Mauritian Wildlife Foundation.
You will also be offered an opportunity to work on Round Island for a week or two, a predator free island closed to the public with a unique ecosystem.
