Working on a deserted Dutch island

Filed under: Animals,Nature by Orangemaster @ 1:31 pm

Finally want to cross off ‘my favourite music if I were stuck on a deserted island’ from your bucket list? Then do we have a nice gig for you: watching birds on a Dutch island.

From April to July 2013, Staatsbosbeheer, which manages nature reserves, is looking for two people to camp out and watch birds on Rottumeroog (Rottum), a small uninhabited island with restricted access.

Ideally you’ll need to apply as a tandem because Staatsbosbeheer wants to have two people that get along well. You’ll also get to stalk butterflies and plants, and write it all down.
