Contributing to the ABMI
Summer field technologists are the backbone of the ABMI. Every spring the ABMI’s Monitoring Centre hires up to 60 field technologists in order to collect information on the state of Alberta’s biodiversity across the province. This information is used by various stakeholders, including government and industry, to facilitate the responsible management of our environment. Summer field technologists conduct surveys at confidential ABMI site locations via helicopter, ATV, argo and foot access. There is opportunity to work as a terrestrial or aquatic technologist across a wide range of terrain, from boreal forests in the north, Rocky Mountains in the west, to prairie and grasslands in the south. Are you interested in being part of a world-class biodiversity monitoring program? Do you want to spend your summer travelling through Alberta’s landscapes, contribute to our understanding of Alberta’s natural world, potentially help discover a new species, and get paid for all of it?
