Voluntariado: Canadá!

SEACR MARINE RESEARCH INTERNSHIPS SUMMER 2008

Enthusiastic individuals with a keen interest in nature and science are invited to discover the challenges of marine field research along Canada's coastal rainforest through SEACR's Marine Research Intern Program! The Society for Ecological and Coastal Research - SEACR - is a non-profitorganization, established in 1998, dedicated to scientific research on the ecology of nearshore marine systems. SEACR is sponsoring several long term ongoing research projects on gray whale ecology and resource use of marbled murrelets in Clayoquot Sound, British Columbia, Canada.

The projects are organized and run by the Whale Research Lab of the University of Victoria,Victoria, British Columbia, Canada (http://www.geog.uvic.ca/whalelab/).

MRIP is a volunteer program where Research Interns live and work at a remote research field-station in the coastal rainforest of Clayoquot Sound, British Columbia. Interns assist experienced and dedicated marine ecologists with ongoing field research and analysis related to coastal and marine ecology.

Internships are offered on a competitive basis, *at cost* and provide invaluable exposure to boat based field work, marine mammal and bird research, the Pacific coastal ocean environment, mentoring with established researchers in marine ecology, and encouragement to work and play hard!

We have a limited number of 3 or 4-week Marine Research Internship available for the 2008 Summer. There is no deadline to apply. However, approved applications are reviewed and accepted on a first-come, first serve basis. If you are interested in applying for a position, please see the details of our application process on our website
