April 25, 2014
December 31, 2014
Wildlife Conservation Society-India Program and its partner, Centre for Wildlife Studies, are conducting line transect surveys for monitoring large mammal populations for the field season 2014 in Dandeli-Anshi, Nagarahole, Bandipur and Bhadra.
Simple vegetarian food and rudimentary field accommodation will be provided to the camp participants. Travel expenses to and from the training locations will have to be borne by the participants. Participants will have to take 2 stamp size photographs along.
Very strict camp discipline has to be observed. Please go prepared with appropriate field clothes (grey, khaki, green, and camouflage; not white, red or bright coloured dresses) and tough walking shoes. It is very important to carry a pair of binoculars. There is no need to take any bedding, though a sleeping bag may be useful.
They maintain a database of all transect participants. And, if you have NOT filled-out the online form earlier or if there is any change in your contact details please use this link to update your details. Else, write a mail indicating only the dates when you wish to participate in their surveys.
The candidates must report on the assigned dates, and must spend a minimum of seven days thereafter. Survey batches of seven days are from a Sunday to a Sunday, and reporting/relieving time on start and end dates will be 12:00hrs.
Please indicate the preference of dates and sites you would like to participate in. The final selection of survey assistants will be decided by them based on the slots available at each site and batch. Hence, only those willing to participate in any of the sites should apply.
