Volunteer Opportunity: International Wetland Communications (WLI)

Wednesday, July 26, 2017

Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust (WWT) provide wetland conservation solutions that work in today's society, sustaining both wildlife and people. WWT have been working to save wetlands and their wildlife for nearly 70 years, using a successful model of wetland centres in the UK, combined with UK-based and international species and wetland conservation projects. For the last 25 years, we have been running the WLI programme (Wetland Link International), a support network for wetland centres globally. WLI works closely with the Ramsar Convention (international convention on wetlands) to deliver its communication and awareness-raising programme. WLI currently has over 300 wetland centre members from across the globe.

WLI has a manager based at our WWT Slimbridge centre, and works through regional networks across the globe, including the Americas, East Asia, and our Migratory Birds for People Project (East Atlantic Flyway). Support is provided through regular communication, coordination and cooperation, as well as a central website. See www.wli.org.uk for more information.

WWT are looking for someone to work closely with the WLI Global Manager, to build their capacity for support to wetland centres across the globe, mainly through managing their membership, supporting recruitment of new members, and helping with communications across the network.
