The Scandinavian Triple
Come to Skagen (Denmark) - Ottenby (Sweden) – Lista (Norway)
Do you want to contribute to a major initiative and take part in not only one but three Scandinavian Bird Observatories!?
This year we offer for the first time a volunteering package: The Scandinavian Triple!
If you would like to volunteer at the bird observatories which are run by the BirdLife partners in Scandinavia, now you have the chance! Come to Ottenby (Sweden) – Lista (Norway) – Skagen (Denmark)
Training and volunteer: These observatories are situated at some of the most important places in Scandinavia for both birdwatching and bird ringing, because of their geographical location. Millions of birds migrate through Ottenby, Lista and Skagen, including sea birds, waders, raptors, and passerines. They are all run by expert bird ringers and birdwatchers eager to share their work with others.
What are we looking for? people with good bird ID skills who can be for at least 3 weeks at each site.
What will you do? Help the staff, collaborating on the daily routines: bird-ringing, migration counts, daily observations, maintenance, etc.
- Autumn 2018: August (Ottenby), September (Lista) and October (Skagen).
- Spring 2019: April (Skagen), May (Lista) and June (Ottenby).
Cost: Travel and food are covered by volunteers. Each Observatory will provide free accommodation and a compensation of 50 SEK (Swedish kr.) pr. day of work and 800 SEK (Swedish kr.) for each travel between the Observatories.
How to Apply: People interested in participating should send an e-mail and CV to email@example.com
Please, write "The Scandinavian Triple - volunteer" on the subject of the e-mail.
Deadline: 1st June (applications for autumn), 1st December (applications for spring)
