Short-term Research Volunteers

Little Cayman, 2017

Jen Moss (Ph.D. candidate at Mississippi State University) is seeking enthusiastic volunteers to assist with long-term monitoring and research efforts on the Sister Islands Rock Iguana (SIRI) on Little Cayman and Cayman Brac. Iguana handling experience is valuable, but not necessary. Fieldwork will be conducted throughout the months of May, June, August, and September 2017, aligning with SIRI’s nesting and hatchling emergence seasons. Activities include but are not limited to nesting surveys, tagging iguanas, recapturing animals to study growth and movement, and radio tracking with the aid of conservation drones. Accommodation and food are provided throughout the volunteer period to assist with costs. This is a great opportunity to get hands-on field experience and contribute to conservation research on this critically endangered and charismatic taxon.
