Happy New Year! At the LBCS office in Queen Charlotte, we're excitedly working away on plans for our 27th field season on East Limestone Island. Vivian Pattison will be returning for another year as our Lead Biologist and Field Camp Supervisor, and we're currently in the process of recruiting an Assistant Biologist and a team of interns (applications due Feb 12). And of course, we're also looking for volunteers to join us!
Volunteers at East Limestone Island have the unique opportunity to immerse themselves fully in our field research and monitoring work. Depending on the week you choose, you may find yourself capturing and weighing Ancient Murrelet chicks, embarking on a sea survey or monitoring local song bird populations. As a volunteer, you will be trained by our resident biologists on various activities, before participating directly in them. It is an amazing opportunity to work at a remote research station in a pristine wilderness environment! Best of all? You don't need any experience to become one of our "citizen scientists"!
Interested? There is loads more information on our volunteering page, and you can check out weekly availability and activities on the 2016 field season schedule page. We do ask for a donation to help offset the costs associated with hosting volunteers, but this donation is tax deductible!
