Roseate tern research field assistant needed asap!

Needed between June 10 and July 2: a field assistant to help with a
long term research study of Roseate Terns nesting on Great Gull
Island, NY. Roseate Terns are an endangered species. The work is very
interesting, but also very demanding physically, involving long daily
checks of the nesting colony, often in sunny, hot weather. A boat
leaves for the island each Friday at 3pm from Niantic, CT; the minimum
stay is for one week. Room and board are provided, plus transportation
expenses and a $200 a week stipend. Please contact Grace Cormons,
(757) 665-4698 or gcormons@es.vccs.edu
