On a regular base, there are opportunties for students to fulfil their internship at the bison project. Depending on the assignment, you work mainly from the office of PWN in Overveen which is located close to the bison area.
Studying the foraging behavior of the bison has been the focus of many studies during the past years of the project. Each student observes one bison and keeps track of when a bison takes a bite, a step, or undertakes any other activity. Afterwards, these recordings are analyzed and conclusions can be drawn about the degree of food selection compared to other ungulates. The same study is also performed on konik horses and Highland cattle.
Students (bachelor or master) who would like to get involved in the scientific research, can send a motivation letter and resume to Yvonne Kemp: firstname.lastname@example.org.
