Volunteers wanted for 2008

Storm Petrels are tiny sparrow-sized seabirds that traverse the globe on their long-distance migrations. They are the focus of one of Cardiff University and A Rocha Portugal's long-running research projects on the impacts of climate change on marine ecosystems.

A unique opportunity exists to take part in the next field season of Storm Petrel research hosted by the A Rocha Bird Observatory on the Algarve coast of Portugal, in collaboration with Cardiff University. During May-June 2008, paying volunteers are being sought to join one of four teams spending 7 days and nights on the southern Portuguese coast, catching and studying these remarkable little seabirds. No previous experience is needed, just enthusiasm and a reasonable level of fitness.

For more details of costs & logistics, or to hear more about the project, please contact Dr Rob Thomas, Cardiff School of Biosciences, Cardiff University, Museum Avenue, Cardiff CF103US.
