Refuge Biology Volunteers, Midway Atoll National Wildlife Refuge

Volunteer work emphasizes habitat restoration including native plant propagation and out-planting, seed collection and processing, removal of invasive plants both by hand and through chemical application of herbicide, and monitoring plant populations.
Other work includes seabird and Laysan duck monitoring, marine debris removal, data entry, and equipment maintenance, along with other tasks depending on current projects and refuge needs. Volunteers are expected to work 40 hours/week with additional weekend work when necessary. The winter season begins on October 11, 2016 and ends in late March/early April 2017. Applications are due by July 1, 2016. Start dates are not flexible due to limited flights to Midway and training requirements for new volunteers.
