Resumo: The Tour du Valat is a private foundation working for the research and conservation of Mediterranean wetlands. Founded in 1954 by Dr Luc Hoffmann and based in the Camargue, it is at the cutting edge of multidisciplinary fields of research, building bridges between science, management and public policies, and drawing up management plans. The Tour du Valat has internationally recognized scientific expertise, and provides practical responses to problems regarding the conservation and sustainable management of natural resources. The Tour du Valat’s projects are carried out in the Camargue and around the Mediterranean Basin.

With its 2600-hectare estate, the Tour du Valat has laboratories, experimental field sites and offices surrounded by wetlands and various other Mediterranean habitats. It has developed a wide range of local, national, and international partnerships. The Tour du Valat research teams work in close collaboration with several national and international research centers, in particular the nearby universities and CNRS (national scientific research centers) of Montpellier and Marseille, the Edward Grey Institute (Oxford), and the Doñana Biological Station (CSIC, Sevilla).

The Tour du Valat is managing the project "Observatory of Mediterranean Wetlands" which has been designed as a decision support tool developed under the MedWet Initiative and the Ramsar Convention. Using a series of themes and indicators, the Observatory produces syntheses on the status and trends of Mediterranean wetlands, analyzes the causes and consequences of changes in biodiversity and the services provided (http: //medwet.org/fr/publications/). It works across the Mediterranean basin with declinations at in the regional, national and local scales. Policy makers are the main target of the transfer.

The Tour du Valat employs 60 people, including 10 researchers and about ten Ph.D. or other students.

Perfil: We wish welcome a volunteer who want to discover the french culture but he/she will have a strong interest for nature (perhaps a formation in Ecology), which will facilitate his/her integration in the world of nature sciences but don´t need to have formation in the area.

The volunteer should appreciate life in community (common cafeteria at mid-day, common bedroom and kitchen in the evening). He/She would appreciate too life in a isolated site (geographically), because of the distance of the nearest town (and its commodities like cinema, restaurant or sports), far from 30 kilometres.


Tarefas: We wish to host 3 volunteers during the same period in order to integrate them in our 3 thematic teams; In each team, the volunteer is participating in differents projects, for example :
• •Field work : datas collection on birds, plans, mamals, amphibians, water levels monitoring…
• •Computerise ornithological, botanical or monitoring trends on wetlands datas,
• •Search and computerise bibliographical datas,
• •Awareness and transfert documents production.

The volunteer will work for one of our projects, depending of the needs of the differents teams and on the feeling of the volunteer. He/she will take part of data collecting, field observations (with ornithologists, botanists or ichtyologists…). He/she will take part of data analysis (on computer) under the responsibility of a project leader. If interest, he/she could work with communication team.

The project will help the volunteer to learn about the various job in our organisation, and to meet with students from differents countries, who are visiting or living in Tour du Valat.
