Description

The objective of this project is to study relative abundance of species (vertebrates and butterflies) within Serra da Bodoquena National Park.

As part of our remit to protect tropical forests we support the work of several national parks in Brazil. Serra da Bodoquena has a long-term monitoring programme. The data collected allow them to estimate species richness and detect early warning signs of climate change and other human impacts.

Your work here will contribute to crucial research to help protect the biodiversity of these forests. You will acquire real research experience and training on surveying methods.

The monitoring expeditions take place only three times a year twice: in (March to April) to survey butterflies and once in August to survey vertebrates. The field trip normally lasts eight days, during which you stay in a farmhouse near the forest. After the field expedition, once you return to town, you can help with data entry in the office.

The language spoken is Portuguese, we coordinate translation services for the training sessions, but it will help your experience if you learn Portuguese before you go. We coordinate all travel arrangements to guarantee your safety.
