Check back soon for 2014 schedule.
Ventana Wildlife Society is offering up to 16 one-week volunteer internships in beautiful Big Sur, California for those interested in learning more about a wildlife management and research career. Selected candidates will assist with a California Condor restoration program and selected avian research and education projects. This internship is an excellent opportunity to work directly with professional biologists and naturalists, gain exposure to endangered species management, learn a variety of avian research techniques, and explore the central California coast in five fun-filled days.
• Interns will have the rare opportunity for a close encounter with California Condors, a critically endangered species with the largest wingspan of any North American land bird.
• No experience is necessary, but candidates should be interested in birds, enjoy being outdoors, and be physically fit. *Internships will be filled giving preference to local college students pursuing a career in avian or wildlife ecology, with a focus on education and/or research.
• The week will include activities such as; orientation and VWS programs overview, tracking condors through the use of radio telemetry, placing supplemental food for the condors, monitoring and taking various condor data, monitor condor nests (not guaranteed!).
Selected interns are responsible for their own food for the week and transportation to Andrew Molera State Park (AMSP). VWS has a camp site reserved at Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park for Sunday / Monday / Tuesday nights to use at no cost. The campground is in close proximity to AMSP. Wednesday and Thursday nights will be provided at our remote condor sanctuary.
