Marwell Wildlife intern

Short-term conservation biology team voluntary intern (travel expenses reimbursed)

Marwell Wildlife co-ordinates the European Endangered Species Programme (EEP) for the critically endangered eastern bongo Tragelaphus eurycerus isaaci. There are only approximately 100-200 eastern bongo in the wild, and the EEP represents a significant proportion of the bongo outside of their indigenous range. This species can be challenging to manage, and best practice guidelines are now needed to advise management and husbandry. We are looking for a voluntary intern to assist with the compilation and production of Best Practice Guidelines for bongo.

Voluntary intern activities include:

  • Compiling and inputting data from questionnaire returns
  • Extracting and analysing data from the studbook database
  • Data analysis
  • Reviewing scientific papers and mining relevant data. Inputting into spreadsheets

We are looking for an undergraduate or graduate in the biological sciences who will be available from mid May for a three month period for a minimum of three days per week. The activities are office-based and good computer skills and interests in population management, husbandry, and/or antelopes are essential.

Marwell Wildlife is located in a rural area with poor public transport connections. Access to a vehicle is therefore vital. .

This internship is unpaid however we are able to reimburse travel expenses.

If you are interested in this opportunity, please contact Dr Tania Gilbert, bongo EEP coordinator, Marwell Wildlife
