We are looking for a dynamic and committed Park Director to support conservation efforts.
The World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) has embarked on an ambitious, field-based conservation programme across the Congo Basin. In the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), WWF is active in several landscape sites, including the over 60,000 km2 Salonga landscape, encompassing the Salonga National Park (SNP), the second largest tropical forest park in the world, a UNESCO World Heritage site, and a critical refuge for bonobos and forest elephants. In addition to its importance for biodiversity conservation, this humid forest region is a major carbon sink and source of other ecosystem services including water provisioning.
The Salonga program takes an integrated conservation approach with a consortium of NGOs, government, community, and academic partners. Key conservation strategies include: protected area management; community land use planning; law enforcement and species conservation; community-based natural resource management and livelihood improvement mostly through small-scale sustainable agriculture and community forestry.
Effective protected area management is a cornerstone of WWF’s conservation efforts in the DRC, in close partnership with ICCN (Institut Congolais pour la Conservation de la Nature, the Protected Areas Authority in DRC). New, creative perspectives and strategies are needed to effectively manage protected areas in this challenging social, economic, cultural, and logistical environment.
