The San Diego Natural History Museum is searching for a qualified candidate to assist with administering a citizen science based study. We are embarking on a study in collaboration with the U.S. Forest Service and the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service to try to determine the distribution and habitat use of the San Bernardino Flying Squirrel (Glaucomys sabrinus californicus). This squirrel is restricted to the San Bernardino Mountains, and little is known of its biology or population trends.
The Filed Technician together with citizen scientists will generate current data about the distribution along the urban edge and the squirrel’s use of use of habitats where residential properties meet the natural environment. He/She will track this information through iNaturalist.org, which provides a platform for citizen scientists to upload their observations and have them linked to databases used by scientists. Study methods include visual encounters and motion-activated cameras. Participating citizens will be trained to deploy and manage motion cameras and bait stations in their backyards. Landowners will maintain the cameras for two weeks.
The participants will be involved directly in the installation of equipment on their properties as well as the routine maintenance of the recording devices. At the completion of the sampling period, they will record all observations through iNaturalist.org, where they can view their own data in the larger framework of the regional research and track their contributions.
