Lista Bird Observatory offers the opportunity for volunteers to stay at the observatory for collaborating with biological and ornithological practice. Volunteers can be students who need to enrich their studies or training, or people who want to learn about bird ringing and our work at the station.
Here you can read a short description of the last volunteers that have been at the station.
Torben comes from Northern Germany and has just finished his Master’s degree in international nature conservation. He made his first bird ringing experience in Greece and has also gained further bird ID and survey skills while working in Sweden and Latvia. He has come to Lista to increase his identification skills on the sea bird monitoring.
Paulien is a Master student in Biology from Belgium. Her interests in Birds and Animals in general were next to her studies encouraged by being part of the youth movement for nature and environment (JNM). During her Erasmus in Trondheim, she got to know Lista Bird Observatory. She has come to Lista to learn how to ring birds and improve her bird ID skills while assisting in sea bird monitoring.
