Call for MAPRU field assistant positions for Marion Island for 2019-20 now open!!

The positions will be offered under the project ‘Southern Indian Ocean Top Predators: linking ecology, oceanography and marine spatial planning needs’. This project will involve distributional and dietary investigations on a suite of marine top predator species breeding at Marion Island (four penguin, three albatross, four petrel and two fur seal species). This will be done to address questions related to ecosystem level changes in the Southern Ocean marine environment, highlight areas of importance and high productivity relevant for spatial planning, and the projected impact of climate forcing on Southern Ocean marine top predators.
