INTERNSHIP IN CONSERVATION BIOLOGY AND MARINE ECOLOGY
Want to gain valuable research experience? Contemplating working for a
non-profit after graduation? Interested in marine conservation?
The Coastal Observation and Seabird Survey Team (COASST) is seeking
3-4 undergraduate students to assist with data entry and management,
volunteer recruitment, tracking, training and communication for
variable college credit.
Each credit requires 40 hours of internship to be completed during
fall quarter, a minimum of two credits required.
COASST is a citizen science project based at the University of
Washington School of Aquatic and Fishery Sciences in partnership with
local community and environmental organizations, and state and federal
agencies. COASST volunteers collect data on beach-cast carcasses of
marine birds on a monthly basis to establish the baseline, or ‘normal’
pattern of beached bird mortality on North Pacific beaches. Baselines
are crucial for assessing the impacts of oil spills, fisheries, and
climate change in the marine environment.

We will schedule interviews through September 24. We look forward to
