The Pacific Islands Conservation Initiative
is a new organisation still developing and forming its structure.
In moving forward we hope to bring together expertise from
all over the world to help people living in very remote locations.
We are currently working towards two teirs of
volunteers, being eco volunteers and professional volunteers.
We will be establishing formal volunteer programmes
aligned to our various projects. The Cook Islands Turtle Project
will be searching for field volunteers to complete Turtle
surveys in 2012. These surveys will be conducted on remote
atolls in the Pacific and will be the first research of it's
kind on these islands.
The Aitutaki Lagoon Monitoring Project is looking
for volunteers to take part in an 8 week expedition learning
and applying tropical marine survey techniques in a lagoon
environment. Eco volunteers will be trained and supervised
by an experienced marine scientist and expedition leader.
Professional volunteers are individuals with
specific skills and experience that can add value to our projects.
We are open to hear proposals from anyone who thinks they
can contribute. Expertise in the following areas is desired;
Fund raising professionals
Note that applciations are screened and assessed
for job and organisational fit. Professional volunteers will
need to be self funding and self sufficient for the time of
their in country engagement.
