A limited number of experienced and skilled volunteers is selected to become Field leaders for our projects. Field Leaders are 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 Coordinators). 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 Officer for the specific site.
To be eligible, you need to be over 20 years old, with a car driving license, fluent in English and ready to spend from 3 – 6 months on the site, depending on the project.
