Lowongan Yayasan CELEBICA

Yayasan CELEBICA is currently seeking to hire an Operations Manager, to be based in  Manado/Sulawesi, with frequent travel to Jakarta/Bogor/other field sites.

Founded in 2017 by a group of scientists and environmental activists Yayasan CELEBICA’s mission is to establish long term partnerships with local communities, district and provincial Governments in Sulawesi and across Indonesia to develop projects and programs that support and sustain the protection of threatened habitats and species, alongside the development of sustainable economic livelihoods for rural communities.

At the heart of CELEBICA’s mission is recognition of the importance of collaboration with different partners, and in particular the private sector. As such, CELEBICA seeks partnerships, both financial and technical, with private companies, public funds or Foundations, both domestic and international, to achieve its goals.

While there is potential for expansion to new geographies in Indonesia in the future, CELEBICA is currently developing a series of innovative activities in Sulawesi (Bolaang Mongondow District), North Sulawesi), including: 1) private sector collaborations that support commodity production and land/seascape protection; 2) the development of nature tourism projects and partnerships with Indonesian and international groups; and 3) the community co-management of forest areas under CELEBICA management to reduce deforestation, amongst other activities. These activities are centred around approximately 400ha of forest and agricultural land and beaches under CELEBICA management that act as habitat for a number of Sulawesi’s endemic and threatened species. The land also has productive clove, fruit and coconut plantations, and potential for a wide variety of agricultural crops. One core strategy of CELEBICA is to explore how the sustainable production of agricultural crops in these areas cou
ld support conservation activities on the ground. As a new Yayasan, there is considerable potential for the organisation to expand significantly beyond these initial baseline activities.
