This wildlife biology intern will assist park biologists in reducing human-wildlife conflicts by detecting and mitigating the availability of human food in campgrounds, parking lots, lodging facilities, and other park areas. Interns will assist with monitoring movements of bears using radio telemetry, assist in capture and relocation of bears and other wildlife, assist with negative conditioning of bears and other wildlife using various tactics, and enter daily patrol data into a database. Additional wildlife management duties may be required as necessary. Interns may also participate in wilderness patrols focusing on educating hikers and backpackers about bears and proper food storage.
