There will be other researchers, who you may be assisting or may be working with on the ongoing Biological Survey, working with camera traps and personal observation of wildlife or on a short term project like developing a medicinal garden or fern garden. As research assistants volunteers will gain hands on field experience as well as new research methods and protocols.
