Seeking 1-2 interns

PAID -- Advantage Environmental Consultants, LLC

AEC is seeking 1-2 interns to provide support for a company project.   AEC provides environmental consulting services to telecommunications providers, and one of the services requested is providing biological monitoring and evaluations of cell tower sites with bird nests.  We would be looking for person(s) with an interest in or experience with birds.  Most monitoring is on osprey nests, and the majority of the work is in the greater Baltimore/Washington DC metro area

Tasks would include:
  • Monitoring cell tower/osprey nest locations for periods of time up to two hours to determine the nesting status (i.e. nest building, eggs, nestlings, fledged)
  • Overseeing work on a cell tower to ensure formerly nesting birds are not adversely effected by the presence of the workers (may be all day/long days)
  • Writing reports documenting observations
This will be an hourly, paid internship and travel costs (during work) will also be reimbursed.  Looking for individuals interested in the interactions between wildlife and commercial enterprises.  The person will have the opportunity to potentially affect the way an industry interacts with wildlife.

If interested, please e-mail a cover letter and resume to:
