This position is based on Playa Rio Oro, and permits for research cover 10km of nesting beach area on the doorstep of Corcovado National Park. The beaches have approximately 4000 nests registered per season, primary from Olive Ridley and Pacific Green sea turtle species, and very small numbers of Hawksbill and the occasional Leatherback. We are looking for a dynamic and independent researcher to develop our science and conservation program and coordinate RAs, local staff and volunteers for the 2020-2021 season. The candidate will also have a good understanding of community development and integration in conservation, as the project has a strong community element where we are looking to support marginalised members of the gold-mining community and other local people with low opportunities
