The Kalahari Meerkat Project is a long-term field project investigating
> the ecological causes and evolutionary consequences of cooperative
> breeding. We are looking for volunteer field assistants to spend one
> year at our study site in the South African Kalahari Desert, collecting
> behavioural data on our habituated meerkat population.
> We offer our volunteers extensive training in field- and data skills such
> as animal handling, radio-tracking, observing animals in the wild and
> working with databases. Accommodation, food and a small living allowance
> will be provided, and we will contribute �300 towards travel expenses
> following successful completion of the 12 month field season. We also
> offer a limited number of full travel stipends for applicants from the
> African continent.
> Successful applicants usually have a good degree in the biological
> sciences and will be enthusiastic, hardworking and physically
> fit. As it takes some time to learn the necessary field skills,
> we will only consider volunteers who are able to stay for a full 12
> months. We are also only able to accept volunteers who have a driving
> license. We are currently short-listing applicants to start from
> June to December 2020. Anyone interested should visit our website
