Long Term Bird Skinners
The Buffalo Museum of Science is looking for volunteers to help with our collections department. We are looking for people who would be willing to commit to a full day of bird specimen preparation (10 am-4:30 pm on Fridays). Their day would include identifications, examination for ecto/endoparasites, data recording, skinning and cleaning skins, preparing study skins, sexing the specimen, skeletonizing non-salvageable skins, etc. Volunteers cannot be squeamish around dead animals, blood, or guts. We are looking for birders-people who KNOW their birds.
We are looking for volunteers who are willing to commit to a year or more of service. Since the training of specimen preparation can be time consuming.
If these seems to be of interest to you, please contact Stephanie Drzymala at firstname.lastname@example.org. Or call her at 716-896-5200 ex 309
