Consultant for Law Enforcement Activities

The World Wide Fund for Nature seeks the services of consultant for Law Enforcement activities in Salonga National Park.
WWF-DRC has entered into a partnership agreement with ICCN (Institute de Congolese pour le Conservation du Salonga) for the co-management of Salonga National Park in central west DRC. Salonga is Africa’s largest forest protected area and second largest in the world after the Amazon. Salonga is also a World Heritage Site and is one of the most important areas of intact forest in the world and home to forest elephant and bonobo, both under severe threat.
Salonga is only accessible by light aircraft and on the many rivers that characterize Salonga. There is presently a rapidly developing Park HQ at Monkoto with new offices, workshops and housing for the 50 plus staff based there. In the park itself there are 6 sectors each requiring the construction of Station Posts with basic facilities and communications systems.
This is a very exciting opportunity to be at the forefront of conservation in one of the most important parks in Africa; it is also one of the most challenging in terms of logistics and its relative isolation.
