CANADA'S NEW NOAH’S PROGRAM — A PROFESSIONAL TRAINING AND FIELD EXPERIENCE PROGRAM IN THE CONSERVATION AND MANAGEMENT OF ENDANGERED SPECIES
WILDLIFE PRESERVATION CANADA is searching for a “New Noah”, an enthusiastic young Canadian scientist willing to participate in a rigorous nine-month professional training program, with the possibility of internship placement in Canada to follow, to learn the methods of endangered species management.
CANADA'S NEW NOAH’s full experience includes travel, living, and training expenses for the New Noah to participate in the Durrell Endangered Species Management Graduate Certificate (DESMAN) February 6 to April 28, 2023 consisting of 12 weeks of intensive theory, at the Durrell Conservation Academy on the island of Jersey in the U.K. This is followed by more than 6 months of practical experience with species and habitat recovery teams saving species on the island of Mauritius and its offshore islands. In partnership with the Mauritius Wildlife Foundation, this specialized training program is designed to provide New Noahs with the field experience and species and human resource management skills needed to effectively run endangered species conservation projects.
Wildlife Preservation Canada’s exists to save wildlife species at risk from extinction in Canada. We do this by performing hands-on work with species requiring direct intervention to recover and providing opportunities for Canadian conservation scientists to expand their experience working with wildlife species at risk.
What does it take to become one of Canada's New Noahs?
NOTE: The successful applicant will be expected to be available from February 3 to October 31, 2023.
