[Indo-Job] Team Leader of WRU Bukit Barisan Selatan National Park (Base Kota Agung)




The Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) has a distinguished history of scientists exploring and saving wildlife in some of the most remote and wild places remaining on Earth. WCS has long recognized that successful conservation requires a long-term commitment to individuals and places. Such a commitment has defined the culture and style of the Global Conservation Program, including the Indonesia Program.


The Wildlife Conservation Society Indonesia Program (WCS-IP) has significantly grown over the last decades, and contributed substantially to the conservation of biodiversity in Indonesia. We currently work in several landscapes in Sumatra and Sulawesi where we aim at protecting threatened species and their habitat. In order to achieve our overall goal of saving wildlife and wild places, the WCSIP programs are strongly supported and backed up by field activities that aim to reduce and mitigate human-wildlife conflicts, combat illegal logging, encroachment and deploys patrol to protect the habitat, and monitor and sustain the health of wildlife.


Human-Wildlife conflicts in the landscapes where WCS-IP works have increased over the last decennia as human populations continue to expand into the wilderness areas. These have resulted into negative impacts on people and their resources as well as wildlife species and their habitat. Through a number of interventions, WCS-IP aims to mitigate the human-wildlife conflicts and ensure a sustainable co-existence between people and wildlife.


To increase the effectiveness of our conservation interventions and to strengthen the role of WCS-IP in mitigating human-wildlife conflicts, WCS-IP has decided to establish a unit, called WRU (Wildlife Response Unit). As WRU unit covers the area of Bukit Barisan Selatan National Park (BBSNP) and Bukit Balai Rejang Selatan (BBRS), WCS-IP is looking for a strong and motivated WRU Team Leader to lead this unit. The Team Leader will be required to plan, manage and run the unit. The work will cover field interventions, compiling and analyzing data regarding human-wildlife conflicts, and developing innovative interventions to address the issues. 


The Team Leader is also responsible to run SMART patrol as an intervention approach to reduce forestry crime including illegal encroachment, hunting, and logging by systematic patrols. The Team Leader will work day-to-day with forest rangers and community rangers to design the strategy and implementation of SMART patrol to protect BBSNP. The Team Leader will be advised by Law Enforcement Legal Advisor and assist law enforcement activities such as arresting illegal logger, encroacher, and poacher during the patrol.
