Angela Graham Bat Consultancy Service Ltd.

Survey Assistant (Casual), Bats

I need assistants in the Manchester area to help with dusk emergence and dawn return-to-roost surveys during May to September.  

This is casual work you can fit-in when you're available, perhaps once or twice a week, possibly including weekends. Dawn availability is particularly useful.

With almost 30 years' experience of working with bats, I offer a learning opportunity for anyone venturing into bat consultancy or conservation work.
