Hello my name is Ariel, I'm a renowned local birdwatcher/ guide in Panama; from October to November,
I support a local environmentalist not for profit Non-Government Organization(NGO) as Site Coordinator on one the most important birds of prey migration monitoring stations in the world ( recording more than a million raptors every year). I require a person to volunteer and serve as hawkcounter. Also to assist me on all program related duties on and off the field.

You'll be the assistant for the program coordinator; hence volunteers will have to fit the following profile:

Also volunteers must be able to spend several hours on the field under variable weather conditions and willing to do some environmental education explaining the work we do, to foreign and local visitors to the site (e.g Tourists, School and college students).
Applicants must be aware that this is a serious project, so as part of our selection process:
1) You'll be provided with resources (links) that will allow you to know more and understand the work we do,
so that you analyze and consider that it's the right fit for you.
2) An Interview on a WhatsApp video call will be conducted.
I require volunteers to stay at least 7 days, but if you consider that you can help us for a longer tenure
it will be kindly appreciated.
