JOTW 01-2012
January 2, 2012

This is JOTW newsletter number 907

This newsletter begins another year of publication.  JOTW began with the
first week of 2001 and was sent to 38 charter subscribers (most of which
are still on board).

“Every day, think as you wake up, Today I am fortunate to have woken up,
I am alive, I have a precious human life, I am not going to waste it. I
am going to use All my energies to develop myself, To expand my heart
out to others, To achieve enlightenment for The benefit of all beings, I
am going to have kind thoughts towards others, I am not going to get
angry, Or think badly about others, I am going to benefit others As much
as I can.”

– Dalai Lama

***   www.nedsjotw.com is in the process of migrating from the Blog
Harbor platform where it has been for the last several years since the
JOTW site first went online to a WordPress platform.  When you go to the
site it will look different.  It does for me.  So I’ll be learning how
to use WordPress over the next few weeks as Woody Goulart coaches me.

The companion sites of www.yourdefcon1.com and www.yourverynextstep.com
are also undergoing a metamorphic transformation.

40.)  External Affairs Manager, World Wildlife Fund, Anchorage, Alaska

About the Organization

World Wildlife Fund (WWF) is the largest network of multinational
conservation organizations in the world. WWF works in 100 countries and
is supported by 1.2 million members in the United States and close to 5
million globally. WWF acts at every level, from local to global, to
ensure the delivery of innovative solutions that meet the needs of both
people and nature.
The Arctic is one of 19 priority regions supported by WWF-US. The WWF-US
Arctic Field Program contributes to the goals of a Global Arctic
Program: conservation of Arctic ecosystems, species, and cultural
values. Our strategies include science-based planning that incorporates
climate change considerations, promoting stewardship in Arctic
governance, and advocating for responsible practices, including marine
protection, in the shipping and offshore oil development sectors. The US
Arctic Field Program pursues these goals through three main initiatives:
• Fish Forever: WWF focuses on protecting habitat for wild salmon in
priority areas such as Alaska’s Bristol Bay and Russia’s Kamchatka
Peninsula, advocating for sustainable fishing practices and the
reduction of bycatch in Bering Sea fisheries, and promoting measures to
protect the integrity and productivity of key marine and coastal
ecosystems.
• Arctic Oceans Protection: WWF argues for preventing offshore oil and
gas development until adequate oil spill response technology is in
place, sensitive areas are protected, and critical gaps in our
understanding of these Arctic ecosystems have been filled.
• Arctic Bridge: WWF staff work across the maritime boundaries of the
Chukchi, Beaufort, and Bering Seas to engage communities, NGOs, and
partners in conserving trans-boundary species and marine ecosystems.

External Affairs Manager

WWF seeks an External Affairs Manager to provide key support for the
Arctic Field Program’s conservation strategy through communications and
development. The ideal candidate is a skilled communications and/or
fundraising professional, with experience working in Alaska on natural

• Assist with fundraising and donor communications. Oversee the

development officers, support the Managing Director (MD) in cultivating
relationships with key financial partners inside and outside Alaska.
Meet on a regular basis with the MD and the VP of Development to develop
and update an ambitious fundraising strategy.
• In accordance with plans developed with Alaska and DC staff, prepare
press releases and advisories, conduct direct outreach with local media
representatives, and write opinion pieces in anticipation of and in
reaction to policies in state and federal agencies. Write occasional
blog posts or facilitate staff blog posts and program updates. Develop
and maintain regular contact with Alaska and North Pacific media
outlets, selected donors, and partners for the Arctic Field Program.
• Communicate with Alaska and Russia teams to understand progress and
setbacks. Monitor new technical information, policy developments,
issues, and trends related to key conservation issues. Work closely with
the Managing Director to monitor and report on overall progress toward
conservation goals.
• Provide feedback (and coordinate Alaska team feedback) to the WWF-US
communications and marketing staff on external communications products.
Look for opportunities to keep the Arctic and Bering Sea featured
regularly in WWF publications and other products (annual report,
catalog, FOCUS, Arctic Circle, and Pulse).
• Identify specific opportunities to heighten the profile of WWF within
Alaska and garner support from partners for WWF conservation goals.
• Overall, coordinate closely with core WWF teams, including Alaska, HQ
communications, Global Arctic Program communications, marketing,
development, and government relations. As appropriate, coordinate with

“We are visitors on this planet. We are here for ninety or one hundred
years at the very most. During that period, we must try to do something
good, something useful, with our lives. If you contribute to other
people’s happiness, you will find the true goal, the true meaning of
life.”
– Dalai Lama
