Lowongan Communication Assistant_Short Term

Across Indonesia, WCS focuses on environmental policy, landscape-level conservation, protection of globally threatened key species such as Rhinos, Tigers and Manta Rays, research and monitoring and engagement with government, companies, universities and local communities. Within Sumatra, our program focuses on Gunung Leuser National Park and Bukit Barisan Selatan National Park, which form part of the World Heritage Site, Tropical Rainforest Heritage of Sumatra, and Way Kambas National Park. Together, these three sites contain the majority of the remaining populations of Sumatran Rhino in Indonesia, and are very important for Tiger, Elephant and Orangutans. The WCS-IP Sulawesi program focuses on Sulawesi’s unique biodiversity such as Maleos, Anoas and Babirusas, and piloting private land ownership as a conservation intervention, the current terrestrial program of WCS in Sulawesi covered the area of Tangkoko Nature reserve, Bogani Nani Wartabone National Park and Lore Lindu National Park. The WCS-IP Marine program works to support local communities and governments to establish marine protected areas and manage fisheries sustainably, with staff in Aceh, Java, Sulawesi, Nusa Tenggara Barat and Maluku, and new program for turtle conservation in Rote Island, East Nusa Tenggara. Finally, WCS-IP is the leading organization in Indonesia working on strategies to support government to combatting illegal wildlife trade with program name wildlife crime unit (WCU).

Despite the GoI’s strong commitment and efforts in sustainably managing its protected areas, these protected areas face serious threats, including encroachment, poaching, over-fishing, invasive species, illegal logging, and mining, leading to habitat loss and overall ecosystem degradation. WCS-IP opts for an approach, which aims to enhance the management effectiveness of a selected number of protected areas by spearheading and piloting innovative interventions, which can serve as examples of excellence for the national protected areas system. Species – such as Rhinos, Tigers, Manta Rays and Maleo – act as flagships for these efforts.. WCS-IP is also exploring new methods of conservation outside of protected areas, such as payment for environmental services, engaging communities in conservation actions, working with companies, etc.

To ensure WCS-IP has effective internal and external communications processes which maintain coherence inside the organization and raises the profile of the organization and its partners externally, a communication officer is needed to advance the WCS-IP conservation agenda through targeted, innovative communications that reach and catalyze change in key constituencies. The Communications Assistant will contribute for building and maintaining a positive profile for WCS-IP work through impactful media and outreach across key external online and offline communications channels; delivering compelling stories and events that reinforce conservation work, while supporting regular and efficient sharing and exchange of information through effective internal communications.
