Organization: Enduring Earth Partnership
Type of Employment: Full-time
Overtime Status/hours per week: Exempt
Reports to: Managing Director, Enduring Earth
About Enduring Earth
Enduring Earth is an ambitious partnership between the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), The Pew Charitable Trusts, The Nature Conservancy (TNC), and ZOMALAB’s Global Permanence Fund intended to help governments around the world expand and sustainably protect Nature and benefit communities with the target to conserve more than 500 million hectares in 20 Project Finance for Permanence deals over the next 10 years.
Experts have identified the need to protect 30% of the world’s natural habitat for the benefit of people and nature. According to a recent report by the Paulson Institute, a major barrier to achieving this goal is long-term financing. Enduring Earth utilizes a proven model, known as Project Finance for Permanence (PFP), that employs private sector finance principles to ensure entire systems of protected areas are sustainably managed and financed.
Project Finance for Permanence has been used to protect more than 90M hectares of critical ecosystems. Examples of PFP deals include:
- Great Bear Rainforest: Where a PFP protected 8M hectares of old growth forest in British Columbia, helping to end the timber wars in Canada
- Costa Rica: Where a PFP enabled the country to become the first developing nation to meet its 30% protected area goals; and
- Bhutan: Where a PFP helped put more than 50% of the entire nation under permanent conservation protection
To date, a pipeline of 30+ new projects has been identified that will yield large scale protection of nature, strong benefits for people, and measurable climate impacts. These include creating new national parks in Chilean Patagonia; expanding marine protected areas in Belize; supporting community conservancy models in Namibia and Kenya; and creating Indigenous protected areas that return management rights to traditional owners in Colombia.

You’ll join a top-notch team and innovative partnership committed to community economic development and the durable protection and conservation of millions of hectares of land and ocean. You will advance the planning and development of external communications for Enduring Earth.
