Wildlife Conservation Society Job Vacancies: Marine Program Community Engagement and Organizational Development Specialist - Bogor, Manado, Mataram & Banda Aceh

The Wildlife Conservation Society’s Indonesia program aims to conserve marine resources vital to the protection and sustainability of a wide range of human activities and livelihoods. Consequently, conservation efforts cannot be separated from the management of fisheries or interaction with coastal communities. WCS employs a rigorous scientific approach to build capacity, strengthen management and inspire community stewardship for the protection and sustainable use of critical marine ecosystems, fisheries and threatened species. To achieve these goals, WCS employs a science-based approach to assisting the Indonesian government to establish and manage marine protected areas (MPAs), manage small-scale fisheries, and protect sharks and rays in various sites.

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 20 million hectares of MPAs by 2020. 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.

WCS has started marine work in Indonesia in 2002 and has expertise in marine and socioeconomic surveying, fisheries science, marine protected area creation and management, marine and fisheries policy, and law enforcement.. Through KfW funding for the period of 2019 – 2025, within these area of expertise, WCS will continue to support the Government of Indonesia through Sustainable Fisheries Management, Decreasing threats to coral reefs and Supporting the designation and management of protected areas.
