The Program Coordinator will fill a vital role within Wildlife Preservation Canada’s (WPC) Native Pollinator Initiative, our mission being to monitor, conserve, recover, and manage populations of at-risk pollinator species, with a focus on declining bumble bees. The Program Coordinator’s role will primarily involve conducting field work for pollinator research/monitoring projects throughout Glenbow Ranch Provincial Park and delivering and managing a focused citizen science program in the Park. This will require organizing and implementing field surveys in the Park that will, 1) determine the abundance and distribution of the Park’s bumble bee species; 2) qualify the Park’s various habitats/ecosystems; and 3) develop a baseline species database of other native pollinators in the Park. Other responsibilities will emphasize maintaining existing partner collaborations and the development of new ones with other like-minded organizations, and on delivering and managing all components of the Bumble Bee Watch citizen science program at Glenbow Ranch Provincial Park. The Alberta Program Coordinator will report directly to Wildlife Preservation Canada’s Lead Pollinator Biologist. Given the nature of the work, a flexible schedule is required, and some weekend and holiday work will be necessary.
