Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS)

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 Sumatera and Sulawesi where we aim at protecting threatened species and their habitat.

A partnership of prominent conservation NGOs, led by WCS, has developed the Spatial Monitoring And Reporting Tool (SMART), to provides a platform to standardize the collection, management, evaluation, and communication of patrol-based monitoring data, such as from protected areas. It is aimed at improving ranger and eco-guard based crime prevention patrolling–and thus the quality and accountability of on-the-ground law enforcement efforts, facilitating adaptive management by government authorities. SMART is currently being rolled out across 31 sites across Asia, Africa, and Latin America. 

In Indonesia, WCS’s strategic approach is to use SMART as a tool to encourage Indonesian national parks to improve management practices and systems, with the aim of curbing forest and wildlife crimes in key landscapes. This is currently being rolled out in Gunung Leuser and Bukit Barisan Selatan National Parks in Sumatra and at the national-level with PHKA (Ministry of Forestry). 

WCS is now preparing to scale up its implementation of SMART in Sulawesi and Sumatra. In Sulawesi WCS will implement SMART in two new locations, focused around the Bogani Nani National Park, and in Sumatra WCS will scale up its existing work on SMART in three national parks – Way Kambas, Bukit Barisan Selatan and Gunung Leuser. In order to increase the effectiveness of our concern, WCS-IP is currently seeking for qualified candidates to fill the following vacancy:
Position:                      SMART (Spatial Monitoring And Reporting Tool) Coordinator
Based in :                    Medan or Lampung office
            Duration  :                   12 months ( possibility for an extension )
