Fauna & Flora International – Indonesia Program Job Vacancies 2020
Job Title: Survey Coordinator
Reporting to: Project coordinator
Coordination: Biodiversity team
Contractual Term: 12-month contract
The Fauna & Flora International, founded in 1903, works to save wildlife in over 40 countries over 5 continents. Its Indonesia program (FFI-IP), established in 2010, is well known as a leading institution in Indonesia wildlife conservation. The goal of FFI-IP is to conserve Indonesia’s wildlife population and its habitat. Since it was initiated, the FFI-IP has been making significant contributions to wildlife contributions in Indonesia by providing advisory assistance on Indonesia conservation issues. Its leading roles in science-based wildlife conservation have been successfully achieved by implementing an integrated science-based conservation approach including pre-project scientific design, systematic data collection, data management, scientific-based data analysis, communicating conservation science through scientific reports, and publications, and post-project evaluation. For years, the FFI-IP has been able to translate its scientific findings into effective conservation action through partnerships based on mutual trust and respect with government agencies, universities, local NGOs, and local communities. FFI is currently having the widest conservation presence in Northern and Central Sumatra, mostly in protected areas and adjoining habitats. However, recent studies found that many non-protected areas in Sumatra still contain a high level of wildlife species richness. FFI recognizes the importance of non-protected habitats for key wildlife species and is now working with relevant partners to strengthen its conservation measure in biodiversity-rich non-protected areas in Riau Province. Part of this activity is a biodiversity survey in the remotes area. FFI-IP is seeking for qualified candidates to fill positions as survey coordinator for managing field team during these surveys.
