Wildlife Conservation Society Job Vacancy: Environmental and Social Safeguard Specialist, Bogor - West Java

The Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) works in over 60 countries to save wildlife and wild places through science, conservation action, education, and inspiring people to value nature. WCS has worked in Indonesia for over 20 years because it is the world’s most important country for biodiversity conservation, being ranked #1 globally for marine biodiversity and #2 globally for terrestrial biodiversity. The large and diverse WCS Indonesia Program (WCS IP) spans the Indonesian archipelago and covers all aspects of conservation, from counter-wildlife trafficking, wildlife protection and law enforcement, to policy development, research, education and outreach, to large field-based operations covering both marine and terrestrial ecosystems. WCS partners closely with the Indonesian Government, local communities, schools and universities, and the private sector.


The WCS Indonesia Marine program focuses on the establishment and effective management of MPAs and development of sustainable fisheries, as interlinked strategies to secure and manage Indonesia’s coastal marine resources. WCS is committed to assisting the Government of Indonesia to meet its national and international commitments to MPA establishment and management – including the commitment to achieve 31 million hectares of MPAs by 2030. MPAs benefit both biodiversity and fisheries management by protecting habitats and protecting breeding populations of important marine organisms. The basis of all of our work is scientific data. Our teams of marine biologists, fisheries scientists, and socioeconomic specialists inform project design with baseline surveys. Regular monitoring of resources informs all subsequent decision making. The Marine Program consists of Seascape Programs, covering the provinces of Aceh, North Sulawesi, North Maluku and West Nusa Tenggara, and the Marine Cross Cutting Program, which consists of four thematic teams - Policy, Science, Shark-Rays and Knowledge Management teams.

WCS is implementing several marine projects focused on the seascapes of West Nusa Tenggara, North Sulawesi, North Maluku and Aceh with funding from the German government and supervision by the German development bank (KfW). The projects aim to conserve Indonesia’s diverse marine ecosystems and important fisheries through creation and improvement of MPAs and improved management of commercially and ecologically important fisheries. It will address threats of overfishing, destructive fishing and loss of marine habitats.
