Terrestrial Species Conservation Adviser (Large Mammals), Myanmar Programme
Fauna & Flora International

Salary: USD 30,000 per annum
Start Date: As soon as possible
Duration of Contract: One-year fixed-term contract with potential to extend, subject to business need and funding availability
Location: The position is based at Fauna & Flora International’s Myeik office in the Tanintharyi region, with regular, extensive field travel.

Myanmar, the second largest country in mainland Southeast Asia, is home to a wealth of biodiversity. The country still harbours large tracts of forest and many charismatic and unique species. In stark contrast to the country’s biological riches, over two thirds of the country’s human population currently live below the poverty line and depend on natural resources for their survival. Despite their high dependence on natural resources, local people have been excluded from decisions concerning the country’s protected areas. Yet this situation is slowly changing. For the first time, grass roots organisations are being established to address issues of environmental governance and human welfare.
FFI is working with these emerging organisations from the snowy and mountainous north of the country in Kachin State to the densely forested and tropical south in Tanintharyi Region. In partnership with Government, NGOs and civil society, FFI’s work in Myanmar covers a range of diverse subjects including working on threatened species, forest, freshwater, karst and marine ecosystems, building skills in protected area management, engaging with the agriculture sector (palm oil) and awareness raising on the issues facing the country as it develops.
FFI is now seeking to recruit a Terrestrial Species Conservation Adviser (Large Mammals) for its Myanmar Programme.
Under the supervision of the Tanintharyi Forest Programme Manager, working closely with the biodiversity team and local village patrol units, the role will guide the technical delivery of the large mammal research and community-based programme in southern Tanintharyi. This is an exciting opportunity to work on conservation of tigers and elephants and contribute to FFI’s wider efforts to support conservation and sustainable development in Myanmar.
The successful candidate will have experience of programme or project management, particularly related to technical aspects in the NGO sector, ideally with a background in nature conservation, conservation biology, ecology, or a related discipline. S/he will be able to demonstrate the ability to work with government and local community partners and as part of a team. Familiarity with Myanmar’s political landscape in relation to forestry and environmental protection will be an advantage as will experience of working with international organisations.
Final appointment is subject to final confirmation of funding for the position.
