Good afternoon, Jim!

We are hiring for two non-seasonal technician positions conducting predator control in endangered seabird colonies on Kaua'i, Hawai'i. We're looking for folks with back-country and remote field work experience, and preferably trapping/hunting work experience. It's a physically demanding but highly rewarding position. If you'd be able to pass this along, I'd really appreciate it.

The official description is as follows: "Monitors and controls non-native invasive vertebrates including feral cats, rats, mice, barn owls, and feral pigs in the remote and rugged Hono O Na Pali (HONP) Natural Area Reserve and other State and Federal lands along the Na Pali coast. Works under the direction of the HONP Seabird Mitigation Predator Control Project Coordinator and the HONP Seabird Mitigation Project Associate. Performs basic construction tasks and simple maintenance on tools and vehicles. Operates equipment such as Global Positioning Systems (GPS), handheld radios, cameras, etc. Operates 4-wheel drive (4WD) trucks or All-Terrain Vehicles. Collects various data in the field and enters data into computers. Assists in the preparation of simple maps and other tasks related to keeping accurate records of the fieldwork accomplished.  Lives and works in primitive conditions for up to ten (10) days at a time. Provides supplemental information on distribution and breeding success rates of endangered seabirds within the study areas and occasionally assists with seabird monitoring work, as needed. Loads, unloads, aims, and fires handguns, shotguns, rifles and other RCUH-authorized firearms from a variety of body positions in authorized project-related research or wildlife control programs."
