Hi everyone. I'm on the hunt for a new trust and statutory fundraiser to join my brilliant team at Zoological Society of London (ZSL) - could this be you? Or do you know someone who fits the bill? Over the last 18 months our team has worked on bids for some amazing conservation programmes, from working with communities to safeguard Angelsharks, and restoring oyster habitats in Great Britain, to transboundary tiger recovery in Nepal and India, and species reintroduction in the pacific islands.   Our new team member can expect to work on raising grants for a wide variety of conservation programmes like these, as well as game-changing capital projects at our world-leading zoos, London Zoo and Whipsnade Zoo.

COnsultant Opportunity

Terms of Reference Project context and background. Bhutan’s exquisite wildlife is facing pressure from poaching, illegal logging and wildlife trade. Rangers are the first, and often the only, line of defense between poachers and wildlife. Everyday these committed man and women run the risk of being confronted by armed loggers, poachers or even the wildlife they are working to defend. UWICER is the national institution that trains frontline staff. Of the 132 current modules in the curriculum only seven relate to wildlife crime while most are based on conservations biology, forestry, and water resource management. The feasibility report conducted by WWF and Southern African Wildlife College (SAWC) also outlines that capacity on delivering anti-poaching training is insufficient, there is no mechanism for training new recruits and no mechanism for refresher trainings for rangers. Hence, the current training does not teach the skills required to effectively address poaching and keep rangers themselves safe in the field. WWF has been supporting ranger trainings and despite the improvements for immediate needs NGO trainings are not a sustainable solution due to funding being limited (and often short-term) and no standard curriculum being used across NGOs. This project will build on current curriculum owned by UWICER through collaboration with Southern African Wildlife College to create an improved and amended curriculum to enhance ranger’s capacity in curbing illegal wildlife crime. For the roll our, the faculty members of UWICER will be provided training of trainer (TOT) based on the new curriculum by experts from SAWC. Objectives Train the faculty members of UWICER on new curriculum  Scope and tasks Design the TOT module for three weeks. Provide TOT to the faculty members of UWICER.
