Cool way to get involved with seabird research & earn a free Discover Pass! Email Jane Dolliver: firstname.lastname@example.org
Looking for experience before graduation? Here’s your chance! Volunteer your time during the month of September (at least 9 hours weekly) for Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife’s (WDFW’s) Western High Arctic Brant Project.
Each year, WDFW conducts an aerial survey of Fidalgo, Padilla, and Samish Bays to estimate the Brant population and determine if a harvest should occur. Bays in Skagit and Whatcom counties are one of very few migratory stopovers for the Western High Arctic Brant population.
How students will contribute:
-review photos to determine bird presence/absence
-calculate aerial survey coverage using altimeter video
-assess photos using imageJ software
What students receive:
-after 24 hours of service, a free discover pass (http://wdfw.wa.gov/about/volunteer/)
-work experience with a state agency
