Call for Volunteers - New Zealand Fur Seals

I will again require the assistance of volunteers for the 1997-98 season.
Volunteers will help catch, weigh, measure and count New Zealand fur seals
(Arctocephalus forsteri) at numerous breeding colonies around South Island,
New Zealand. Transportation around South Island will be provided, but food
and accommodation costs are the responsibility of each volunteer. I will
need people from 12 December 1997 to 7 March 1998 (summer), and then from
25 May to 5 July 1998 (winter). Volunteers are requested to stay at least a
fortnight. Please indicate your interest by 5 October 1997 for the summer
session, or by 15 April 1998 for the winter session.
