Volunteers and interns typically join the ARLA for a short period of time of a minimum of 3 months full-time or six-months part time, reporting to the Global or Regional Coordinator or Programme Officers. Some individuals volunteer for many years, some come back after a hiatus, some help generally across tasks, while others develop discreet projects. Overall, volunteers and interns are critical to updating assessments, developing novel tools (e.g. the Amphibian Assessment Forum), conducting analyses, and contributing much energy and innovation to the red listing process. Interns are often early-career biologists who commit to a project that qualifies them as new ASG members.
