Hi folks,

Please pass along to anyone you know who may be interested.

The Nevada Department of Wildlife is currently recruiting for a Wildlife Area Technician (Fisheries Technician) position, and is accepting applications at the Tech I and Tech II levels. This position will focus on recovering the endangered Moapa Dace and other native fishes of the Muddy River through nonnative fish removal efforts. Moapa Dace are endemic to the headwaters of the Muddy River, and the population had dwindled to fewer than 500 fish in 2009. However, ongoing interagency habitat restoration and nonnative fish removal efforts have brought the population up to over 2,000.

This position will work with biologists to develop and implement intensive, nonnative species eradication efforts using chemical piscicides and other methods. This position will also perform population surveys, water quality sampling, macroinvertebrate sampling, and habitat restoration.

There is no closing date for these announcements, but I recommend that interested individuals apply as soon as possible. Below are links for the announcements for those interested.

Wildlife Area Technician II Recruitment #27052
