With exciting projects now mushrooming across Europe, the high profile rewilding movement is playing an increasingly influential and impactful role in European conservation.  The recently established Rewilding Portugal helps to oversee rewilding activities in the Western Iberia rewilding area, focusing on the Greater Côa Valley and surrounding area. These activities are being scaled up through the following projects:

  • The LIFE WolFlux project “Decreasing socio-ecological barriers to connectivity for wolves south of the Douro river”.
  • The Cambridge Conservation Initiative Endangered Landscapes Programme project “Scaling up rewilding in Western Iberia”.

These projects, which started in January 2019 have a large communications component, and Rewilding Portugal is now looking to strengthen its team by recruiting a Communications Officer (part-time, 0.5fte). Working with the Western Iberia Team Leader and other team members, he/she will take the lead in developing and delivering a communications strategy for Western Iberia, implementing a fundraising strategy, and helping to promote the Côa Valley as a top rewilding area and nature-based tourism destination.

The position will be based at Rewilding Portugal’s home office in Guarda.

If you think you have what it takes, and really want to make a difference to conservation in Portugal and Europe, please send your CV and motivational letter to before 10th June. Please also send any queries regarding these positions to this address, or call +351 912196778.
