Frankfurt Zoological Society (FZS) is an internationally operating conservation organisation based in Germany that has been implementing conservation projects in Africa, South America, South-East Asia and Europe for many decades. The FZS Europe Programme aims at maximising the organisation’s conservation impact by safeguarding large, biodiverse wilderness areas, mainly in Eastern Europe. Several of these project areas are facing severe threats, e.g. legal and illegal logging or largescale infrastructure projects, which require targeted and focused action on a regional/international scale.
FZS plans to complement its site-based conservation projects in Europe (e.g. in the Carpathians, the Polesia region, the Bialowieza forests of Belarus and Poland) by a coordinated conservation advocacy approach, mainly to tackle such threats, which require targeted and focused action on a regional/international scale. Therefore, the FZS Europe department is seeking a:
Conservation Advocacy and Casework Officer for European Wilderness Areas.
The deadline for applications is 11th August 2017.
