TNC- Ohio Biological & Species Monitors

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: The Nature Conservancy in Ohio

MOnitor

The Nature Conservancy’s preserves protect some of the most rare and wonderful flora and fauna in Ohio, and we need YOU to help monitor and take care of them. It is a tremendous help to TNC staff to have skilled volunteers help to monitor specific populations of plants or wildlife. You can make a difference by collecting this valuable data on where, when and how many species occur in a given place and time. This data can help managers and other conservationists/scientists assess different populations and take action as necessary to ensure their health and persistence. Preserve Monitors must have the ability to take photos of potential problems and to access email, use text messaging, and occasionally chat via phone as needed. Preserves Monitors should be comfortable collecting and reporting data in a scientific manner and have the ability to use aerial imagery and mapping systems such as Google Earth to communicate locations of species occurrences.

· What you can expect to work on: Work with TNC staff to identify species of interest and spend time monitoring their status at TNC preserves. Communicate regularly with staff about findings.

· Region: Statewide at all TNC-Ohio Preserves

· Time Commitment : As often as once a week at some preserves, monthly is preferred, however any commitment of time is appreciated.

· Who would you report to: Angie Burke & Regional Staff

· Training required : Yes, discussion with TNC staff to review situation response procedures.
