Full time and consultancies
WCS's Ruaha Katavi Landscape Program is aiming to safeguard two remaining critical wildlife corridors across this landscape. Grazing is a common threat to wildlife habitat, so a clear understanding of grazing dynamics is critical to helping address various conservation challenges. Poor grazing management can lead to poor pasture management, overuse of grazing resources and ultimately habitat and soil degradation. In the hope of finding virgin pasture, grazers have increasingly settled in national priority wildlife corridor areas, placing increasing pressure on natural resources, displacing wildlife, and often raising tensions between local communities, wildlife authorities and others. There is a need to better understand these dynamics to develop a strategy for engagement and management of grazing interests.
Integrate with a dynamic and mixed team of conservation professionals, to work under pressure, meet deadlines and remain flexible regarding other work requests.
