The School of Aquatic and Fishery Sciences has an outstanding opportunity for a Continuing Education Volunteer Coordinator to support the Coastal Observation and Seabird Survey Team (COASST).
The Coastal Observation and Seabird Survey Team (COASST) is a rigorous citizen science organization based in the School of Aquatic and Fishery Sciences at the University of Washington. Now 15 years old, COASST recruits and trains coastal citizens from northern California north to Kotzebue, Alaska to survey their local beach in a systematic, standardized fashion, returning data on a monthly basis about the number, identity, and condition of beached marine birds and, separately, marine debris.
