The successful candidate will also help out the warden team with the various monitoring efforts and general island duties,” says the advertisement. “It will also involve monitoring butterfly transects, moth trapping, and helping out the ranger team with practical management tasks such as Rhododendron seedling searches, dry stone walling, etc.”
