How Could You Pass Up a Chance to Work With These Guys?
Just as our Spring intern, Stephanie McMahon arrived, the majority of the Bifeng Xia pandas have decided that they would begin breeding. The much needed assistance that Stephanie is providing will help to collect important behavioral data. It’s a job that requires you to wake early and stay late. So we sincerely appreciate all her hard work.
We still have positions available for the Summer and Fall, so check out our intern application by clicking on the below link and we hope to hear from you soon.
I thought it might be nice to share a few photos of the Avian variety taken on a trip to the wonderful SW United States. I will leave off the species so that everyone can have a chance to try and identify them on their own.
If you’re interested in working on reproductive behavior in giant pandas or conservation biology in general and want a great opportunity – you’ve found it. I’m looking for two students to be at the CCRCGP during part of my stay and the rest of the breeding season to collect some of data that would be incorporated into our current study. Here’s a montage of some of my interns experiences!
I’ll be needing help during the reproductive mating behavior scoring so if you’re interested check out my blogs from last year and the interns blogs from fall and winter. Read the current listing and apply! There are two winterinternships available.
One of the wonderful scientists on our advisory board, Anne Warner, just sent this around to me and so I thought I’d share.
“There are so few ways to fund conservation work in this state I want to support this novel approach and help get the word out about this opportunity to help the ODFW raise dedicated funding to support Oregon Conservation Strategy implementation efforts.
Proceeds from ODFW’s 2012 Habitat Conservation Stamp will fund habitat conservation projects with a focus on grasslands—one of the most imperiled habitats in Oregon. Stamps sell for $40 and include a free ODFW Wildlife Area Parking Pass (a $22 value). Stamps and prints are available for purchase online at ODFW’s website or anywhere fishing and hunting licenses are sold. More information can be found at, http://www.dfw.state.or.us/conservationstrategy/habitat_conservation_stamp.asp
Please join us and help spread the news about this new opportunity to generate dedicated funding to support conservation efforts associated with the Oregon Conservation Strategy and Oregon Nearshore Strategy. I have also attached a copy of the order form which you can print out and mail or fax back to ODFW.”
