Tropical Ecology & Conservation Internship
Learn more about this experience and apply to participate below!
During this biological internship students take part in the research projects in the reserve and assist in our tropical field studies. Interns help collecting data for various research projects and will thereby gain theoretical and practical knowledge in tropical ecology and obtain hands-on research skills. Furthermore the participation in our reforestation project and planning of environmental education workshops directly supports our conservation efforts.
Interns will assist in the following projects:
– Lepidopteran project (studying the diversity of butterflies with bait traps and nets)
– Monitoring with camera traps (studying the diversity of mammals and ground birds)
– Long-term bird monitoring (constant effort mist netting and bird banding, bird census)
– Research on flower ecology and hummingbird-plant pollination networks
– Reforestation project (monitoring of seed germination and seedling growth)
– Planning of environmental education workshops for local kids
– Assistance in research projects of other students or researchers
– Data management (data entry and analysis)
