Position: Wildlife Nutrition Coordinator
Reports to: Wildlife Rehabilitation Manager
Organization: Toronto Wildlife Centre
Location: Currently based at Downsview Park, with plans to relocate to the Rouge National Urban Park during 2020
Start Date: Early spring 2020
Commitment: One year contract
Compensation: Commensurate with experience
The wildlife kitchen at Toronto Wildlife Centre (TWC) has been providing nutritious, species-specific food for thousands of patients annually, representing over 270 wild species. A healthy diet is a critical aspect of rehabilitation for wildlife. The logistics of delivering hundreds of fresh meals each day to hungry patients is challenging so TWC is looking for an experienced nutritionist to take the lead.
The Wildlife Nutrition Coordinator will take over the majority of diet-related responsibilities currently undertaken by the wildlife care team. This person will oversee and manage the preparation of individual daily diets, supervise and train kitchen volunteers and seasonal staff in properly preparing meals and caring for feeder colonies (e.g., fruit flies, minnows and mealworms), research ways to improve wild diets, and develop and implement processes to improve efficiency and reduce food waste
