A limited number of experienced and skilled volunteers is selected to become Field leaders for our projects. Field Leaders are volunteers responsible for leading the teams and ensuring the proper on- site implementation of sea turtle monitoring actions (Monitoring Field leaders), public awareness actions (Public Awareness Field Leaders) and the good state of ARCHELONs Research Stations (Camp and Volunteer Leaders).
Collaboration between the Field Leaders is essential for the smooth operation of each project. Together they formulate the weekly schedule (rota), boost the motivation of volunteers and manage occurring problems, in cooperation with the Project Coordinators for the specific site.
The total numbers of people who will participate in ARCHELON’s projects in 2021 will be lower than those of previous years, so that measures against the spread of COVID-19 can be effectively implemented.
To be eligible, you need to be over 20 years old, with a car driving license, fluent in English and ready to spend from 2 – 6 months on the site, depending on the project. There are special requirements for each of the Field Leader categories, included in the links below.
The deadline for submitting an application and a short Curriculum Vitae for the 2021 season is the 10th of January 2021. The selection is expected to be finalized by 30 March, 2021.
