WWF - Jobs at WWF

Job Overview

 The Wolrd Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) is one of the largest independent conservation organizations in the world. We are an international NGO committed to environmental protection active in almost 100 countries and have been working in the Congo Basin since 1978.
The Dzanga Sangha Protected Areas complex (DSPA) is a 4,450 km² area, comprising the Dzanga Sangha Dense Forest Special Reserve with its various community use and other zones, and the Dzanga Ndoki National Park. This area is home to spectacular large mammals such as forest elephants, lowland gorillas and chimpanzees, bongo, buffalo, sitatunga, giant forest hogs and as well as a large variety of monkeys and duikers. The area is also home to exceptional diversity in other taxa.

WWF is supporting the Government of CAR to manage DSPA both to conserve its exceptional biodiversity and to promote the sustainable management of natural resources for the well-being of nearby human populations.

The DSPA administration and WWF take a multi-disciplinary approach to management of this important area, including developing and managing infrastructure, human and financial resources; conservation through surveillance and anti-poaching activities; income generation via tourism through a primate habituation programme focused on lowland gorillas as well as other tourism activities; and sustainable rural development to take pressure off natural resources and sustain livelihoods.

DSPA is part of the recently inscribed Sangha Tri-National (TNS) World Heritage Site. The TNS is made up of three national parks (Dzanga Ndoki in CAR, Lobeke in Cameroon and Nouabale Ndoki in the Republic of Congo) and their buffer zones. The protected area managers and their key partners work together to manage the TNS.

The conservation department's mission is to ensure the protection and conservation of DSPA's biodiversity. It is responsible for managing the 40 eco-guards, and the conservation trackers and porters and implementing anti-poaching and law enforcement activities. The department also contributes to planning and implementing trans-boundary anti-poaching patrols and contributes to the operations of the TNS anti-poaching brigade.

The WWF team based in Bayanga providing support to the DSPA consists of a Principal Technical Advisor, a Technical Advisor for Conservation, a Primate Habituation, Research and Tourism Advisor (this position), a Community Development Technical Advisor as well as different support staff for logistics, finances and administration; WWF also has a national office in Bangui.

WWF-CAR seeks a Primate Habituation, Research and Tourism Advisor whose major function will be to provide technical assistance, oversight and leadership to ensure the effective management of the Primate Habituation Programme (PHP), tourism-related activities, and research activities in the Dzanga-Sangha Protected Areas (DSPA), ) and transfer his/her technical and management knowledge and experience to the DSPA staff.

  • •Ensuring the PHP adheres to IUCN best practise guidelines.
2. Support the development and management of DSPA tourism activities by:
  • Supporting the DSPA Head of Tourism regarding staff management and development, staff evaluation, detailed and accurate record keeping, visitor management, etc.;

  • Working to identify opportunities, funding and people to increase the research activities at DSPA, especially in the context of ecological monitoring and biodiversity research as a support to conservation management;
  • Coordinating biological data collection by DSPA staff and support the procedure from conception to evaluation.
