One master student is looking for volunteers !
Iconic Mount Lofty Ranges Southern Emu-wren (Stipiturus malachurus intermedius) is critically endangered with only ~140-290 left in the world. This Masters research project aims to understand the relative influence of habitat attributes on distribution, and to help focus future conservation actions. This is a great opportunity to see rare and beautiful wetlands and assist in conserving the endangered Mount Lofty Ranges Southern Emu Wren, which is endemic to this area.
This volunteer offer is the opportunity to contribute to the conservation of the endangered Southern emu-wren in South Australia. We are looking for volunteers for June. You can join for the whole month or the days you are available (1 or 2 days or more days)
Transport to the field site will be cover as well as accommodation and meals if you can stay overnight.
We will be doing bird surveys and sampling vegetation (measuring height and density). Field work will consist on long walks in the swamps. Rubber boots are required. It is advisable to bring a hat and raincoat.
