About the role
WILDLABS and Fauna & Flora International seek an exceptional early career conservationist to grow and support the Southeast Asia regional community in our global conservation technology network. This paid 12-month position is for a promising conservation leader to map out the conservation technology landscape in their local region, connecting with key practitioners in the local conservation technology sector as well as identifying needs, opportunities, and challenges to conservation technology uptake.
You will be supervised by conservation technology experts from FFI (Vietnam and UK teams) and WILDLABS. These mentors will help you develop global and regional connections within the conservation technology community. Throughout this internship, we will provide training in communications, grant writing, and community building in addition to supporting the development of your proposed conservation technology project.
As the facilitator of the Southeast Asia regional conservation technology network, you will be tasked to identify knowledge gaps and barriers to conservation tech use, create content and resources to engage and support the conservation tech community, and plan and coordinate a product (such as ‘best practices’ documentation or technology guides) or event (such as networking and knowledge exchange workshops or a virtual lecture series) to facilitate knowledge exchange between regional conservation and technology actors, and the global conservation technology community.
- Identify and engage key technology and conservation technology stakeholders and practitioners in the region; survey this network and organize meetings to identify knowledge and innovation gaps and develop an engagement strategy to support the use of conservation technology.
- Deliver a regional ‘best practices’ survey to assess regional current use of conservation tech use as well as identifying local needs and barriers to the uptake of conservation technology.
- Develop and deliver a capacity building or engagement activity that responds to knowledge exchange and training priorities identified through stakeholder engagement and the regional State of Conservation Technology Survey.
