They should also have a good sense of humor and be able to cope with a country where Murphy's Law reigns supreme. It needs to be emphasized that this project is in a fairly remote part of Mongolia and participants will be living on the steppes in simple and primitive conditions.

Tax deductible donations cover all expenses at the site, and in addition, 1-2 nights of lodging in an expedition rental in Ulaanbaatar, and train and jeep transport from Ulaanbaatar to the Egiin Gol and return to Ulaanbaatar.
