APWF are seeking motivated volunteers to be involved in this interesting project. The project activities include downloading, categorizing and analyzing the activity of cats and wildlife from wildlife cameras placed around suburbs of Ipswich. Volunteers will be trained in image analysis software, data management and identification of native species. The position would suit a wildlife or ecology student wanting to learn how to manage wildlife camera images. There is potential to gain field experience in setting wildlife cameras during the next deployment.
We are seeking volunteers who can commit to a minimum of 6 weeks. Hours are flexible, but preferably a minimum of 5 hours per week. The volunteering will be based in the APWF office in Kenmore, Brisbane.
The data from this position is key in providing information about wildlife, stray and domestic cat populations and the impact of the Community Cat Program. The Community Cat Program aims to humanely reduce the numbers of stray cats through desexing to benefit the community, cats and wildlife.
