Job Opportunity: WildSafeBC Columbia Valley Community Coordinator
LOCATION: Radium, Invermere, and surrounding areas
WildSafeBC is the provincial leader in preventing conflict with wildlife through collaboration, education and community solutions. WildSafeBC’s message of “keeping wildlife wild and communities safe” underscores the important role humans play in reducing our impact on wildlife and increasing community safety. Our work focuses on actions we can take to avoid attracting wildlife into our communities, increasing awareness of human-wildlife conflict issues and seeking solutions to reduce conflict and increase public safety.
The WildSafeBC Community Coordinator position is more than just a job; it is a unique opportunity to make a real difference in reducing human-wildlife conflicts where you live. This position requires maturity, self-reliance and the ability to work alone for long periods of time with minimal supervision. Professionalism, commitment and good communication skills are also essential.
Community coordinators will be trained in the use of proven education and delivery techniques, which they will then be expected to implement within their communities regarding conflict-reduction information about all species of wildlife as part of BCCF’s WildSafeBC program.
