Specifically Seeking Volunteers for Wildlife Monitoring using Remote Sensing Cameras in the San Francisco Bay Area region:
We are seeking volunteers to aid in the set-up, monitoring, and data management with remote cameras (motion-sensor trail cameras). If you are selected as a team member – you must be responsible, reliable, and able to dedicate time to prep sessions and for field work every 2 weeks. Having your own vehicle is a PLUS. This will take place throughout the Bay Area, with a focus in the East Bay.
If interested, please email email@example.com, and tell us about you, your background and availability. Students (especially with a wildlife or biology focus) are welcome to apply. Experience is a benefit.
Update social media
Blog about events, news and field activities
If you are interested in any of the above opportunities, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Provide your name and volunteer interest/s in the email. If you decide to volunteer, a Felidae staff member will help familiarize you with your new volunteer opportunity.
Felidae also offers internships to students of all ages and skill levels who are interested in ecology and conservation. Interns are immersed in depth into the world of wild cat conservation, including field work, fundraising, public speaking and a wide range of activities associated with operating a non-profit. Our internships are volunteer-based, and do not provide monetary compensation or housing.
The length of an internship is variable, ranging from 3 weeks to longer. While there are no specific pre-requisites (other than a love of cats or science, or both, and a desire to make a difference), we do require interns to make a time commitment in terms of weekly hours and have the ability to meet deadlines.
