Description

Experienced herpetologist wanted to volunteer on an amphibian conservation project in the Caribbean for a minimum of 6 months, all expenses paid. The successful applicant will join the high profile Mountain Chicken Frog (Leptodactylus Fallax) Conservation Project on the Caribbean island of Dominica (see www.mountainchicken.org ). Over recent years, this species has been decimated on the island by the lethal disease, amphibian chytridiomycosis. You will assist the Dominican Forestry and Wildlife Division in the captive management of mountain chicken frogs in a dedicated conservation breeding facility in Roseau. There are likely to be opportunities to be involved in assisting mountain chicken conservation outreach activities (e.g. to local schools) and assisting in field surveys.

Applicants must have a proven track record of working with amphibians in captivity and experience working on amphibian monitoring programmes in the field using transect methodologies is desirable. Applicants must possess a valid driving license and be physically fit.

Short-listed applicants will be interviewed at the Zoological Society of London and will depart for Dominica shortly thereafter. Travel and medical insurance will be provided. To apply, please send a covering letter stating your experience, interest, and availability, plus a copy of your curriculum vitae, to ben.tapley@zsl.org

Closing date for applications is the 24th August 2015.
