Staff work to protect and recover a state-threatened population through a long-running demographic study, intensive nest site management, research projects and outreach focused on key stressors. Field biologists collect data on loon abundance and breeding performance within an assigned monitoring region, assisted by volunteers. Other duties include nest site protection, rescues and mortality collections. Seasonal staff are also involved in the capture, banding, and band-re-sighting of adult and juvenile loons. Positions provide excellent hands-on experience with the conservation biology of this charismatic species.
All positions involve extended independent work and teamwork at key times. Applicants must enjoy—or at least cheerfully tolerate—strenuous physical work in harsh weather, with rough water and biting black flies and mosquitoes. Reliable transportation is required. Applicants must be willing to approach lake users and solicit their cooperation. Qualifications include coursework or degree in wildlife biology or similar field, field experience with bird or wildlife surveys, and boating experience. Applicants with serious interest should email or send a resume and cover letter to John Cooley, Loon Preservation Committee: jcooley(at); P.O. Box 604, Moultonborough, NH 03254. Applications will be accepted until positions are filled, usually by mid-February.
