The Peregrine Fund is seeking field assistants (2) to assist in research and restoration of the endangered Puerto Rican Sharp-shinned Hawk (Accipiter striatus venator) in the central mountains of Puerto Rico. The project goal is to determine the population status and number of nesting pairs, and increase the productivity through captive propagation and release of young and nest site management.
The heart of The Peregrine Fund’s education program is our interpretive center in Boise, Idaho, where visitors have the opportunity to meet live raptors from around the world. The interpretive center provides a unique experience that engages the public about the importance of conservation. The Raptor Specialist must be a motivated, self-starter that is dedicated to achieving measureable conservation results. She/he is a team-oriented person who has a proven track record of leadership and a depth of experience with live raptors.
