Conservation Biology at the University of Utah
Contact: Austin Green
At least one month, at least 15 hours per week. (More positions with more flexible scheduling available during the school year.)
Austin Green runs a large-mammal community science conservation project in the Wasatch using trail cameras. He accepts interns year-round to help him with fieldwork, and to set up and maintain cameras in the Wasatch, coordinate community scientists, and attend community science events. If you continue your internship with Mr. Green into the school year, you’ll have the opportunity to help him manage a database of camera-trap photographs by entering and verifying species classifications. You might also present to audiences at the Hogle Zoo, the Loveland Living Planet Aquarium, and the Natural History Museum of Utah, and at other events to help recruit and train volunteers.
This position is best suited for someone who is interested in wildlife biology, conservation, and community outreach.
