Although our primary focus is research, a research institute does not only need biologist to run effectively. Below are non-research related roles including: photography, videography, reserve maintenance, commuications and volunteer coordination.
We use cameras for research on wildlife and as a result our biologists developed a passion for photography and filmmaking. IPBio now produces eBooks, documentaries, and educational videos.Our videos have been sold to Discovery Channel. Volunteer can create short documentaries about environmental issues, our research projects, the birds we release, weekend activites and promoting the volunteer program.Photograph nature so we can show the wonders of our forest and capture shots of our projects that show the value of research as a tool for conservation.
Reserve Maintenance, Construction and Gardening:
We always needs help maintaining the grounds, trails, animal enclosures, vegetable patch and microclimate greenhouse so if you are interested in getting your hands dirty then we always have a job for you.
Help raise awareness about the Research and Release Center and its projects. Support our communications by: improving our website and social media; creating informative videos; setting up material to inform students and universities about courses we offer; writing grants and fundraising; seeking partners for our Institution.
IPBio currently has 2 full-time staff members dedicated to the management of the volunteer program, however, we always appreciate support in organizing the daily tasks of volunteers. The volunteer coordinator must be able to learn about the various projects quickly, have leadership qualities and be responsible.
