73.) Project Leader, Mountain Gorilla Conservation Project, Virunga National Park, Frankfurt Zoological Society, DR Congo

The Frankfurt Zoological Society stands for a world in which biodiversity values are recognised and maintained, in order to ensure a high quality of life for current and future generations. Within this context, our mission is to protect the natural diversity of species in important ecosystems across the globe – in partnership with and for people.

The Africa Programme is the Society’s largest and oldest. The Programme works in seven African focal countries: Tanzania, Kenya, Democratic Republic of Congo, Ethiopia, Zimbabwe and Zambia. FZS’ first overseas conservation activities were launched in Tanzania more than half a century ago. Tanzania remains the major focus of our conservation efforts, with the flagship being the Serengeti ecosystem, in which the FZS Africa Regional Office is situated. For more information on the Society, please visit our website at www.fzs.org.

FZS in DRC

FZS has supported biodiversity conservation in the Virunga National Park since the 1950s and for several years between 1960 and 1980 provided the only source of salaries to the park staff in order to help maintain morale and commitment to protect the park’s threatened wildlife. In 1983, the society supported the very first habituation of mountain gorillas for tourism in order that they could generate revenue to support the park and local communities living close to the park’s boundary.

Frankfurt Zoological Society has recently been awarded a 2.4 million dollar grant by the World Bank to support mountain gorilla conservation and the local communities over the next three years. Our work will continue to focus on providing support to the rangers (training, equipment, rations etc), but will also include the construction of both park and social infrastructure including ranger accommodation, schools, health centres, and water catchment systems. The project will also contribute to improving the livelihoods of the local communities including a community of Batwa Pygmies, and has already provided them with their own land in a ground-breaking initiative within this region. Efforts to help reduce human-animal conflict are also a key part of the project and a new project to build a solar powered electric fence around the gorilla sector to keep gorillas and elephants from crop raiding will soon be launched. In addition to the World Bank funded project, the FZS Chimpanzee habituation project in Tongo has been working to re-open Chimp tourism in collaboration with the park authorities, while providing capacity-building and training to the local communities.

The job

FZS is now recruiting a Project Leader to provide management and technical support for our wide range of conservation activities in the Virunga National Park, where you will be responsible for all aspects of project management work, from the design stage through to implementation, monitoring & evaluation. Under the supervision of the DRC Programme Manager, you will support the implementation of the Society’s Virunga National Park Gorilla Conservation Project including:

•Designing, launching and managing FZS activities within the Virunga National Park;

•Project development, reporting and management for third party donors such as the World Bank;

• Managing field staff to ensure that project objectives are achieved in a timely fashion;

•Representing the FZS Virunga Project within the FZS network as well as externally to government departments, donors, partner organisations and the general public.

The position will be based at Rumangabo with occasional visits to Kinshasa, ARO (Serengeti, Tanzania) and Europe.

Essential attributes

•At least three years practical work experience in conservation and/or natural resources management in Africa, preferably in DRC or the Great Lakes Region;
