Large mammal specialist

  • Large mammal specialist positions involve two separate potential skillsets needed; experience with camera tracking, and experience with tracks and signs. Some of our expeditions require both, others one or the other, so please specify in your application where your experience lies.
  • Applicants should have experience of working in the field with a biological undergraduate degree level or higher or equivalent experience. Experience of conducting similar work with large mammals would be ideal, but most important is a desire to learn and enthusiasm for conducting field work in remote locations.
