The Wildlife Conservation Society seeks to employ a regional wildlife trafficking coordinator to manage a growing portfolio of projects in the region that address this challenge and to provide expertise to country programs in the areas of law enforcement and the dismantling of trafficking networks.
The objective of this position is to support the long-term conservation of wildlife species through strengthening our response in Latin America to the illegal trade in - and demand for - wildlife and wildlife products.
The Latin America Wildlife Trafficking Coordinator will lead the building and implementation of a coherent strategy to tackle international wildlife trafficking across Latin America, establishing robust and effective partnerships with key actors addressing the problems of international wildlife trafficking, assisting with the development and implementation of international policy strategies, and building donor relationships to strengthen and grow our efforts in Latin America. The coordinator will also provide technical expertise, especially by facilitating training and capacity-building throughout the Latin American region and will coordinate WCS’s increasing engagement in intelligence sharing and related data management.
