Biodiversity Rangers Needed for Little Barrier Island

David (admin), 26 May 2009 07:11 pm

Warkworth Area,Auckland Vacancy 62/356T Little Barrier Island (Hauturu) provides a unique glimpse of primeval New Zealand as the only large (3083 ha) forested area of the country left undisturbed by introduced, browsing mammals. Located in the outer Hauraki Gulf, 80 km from Auckland, this spectacular island is steep, rugged, mountainous and heavily forested. The island provides an important refuge for many threatened and endangered species and with the recent eradication of kiore is now free of all introduced predators. The island's 350 indigenous plant species are threatened by a range of weeds and continued effort is needed to keep these under control. To assist with this important work, the Warkworth Area is looking for four experienced and motivated people to live on this island of outstanding conservation value and to work together on weed control for about 3 months from mid August 2009. The successful applicants will be able to demonstrate: * Experience in working effectively in isolated and challenging outdoor conditions * A high level of fitness * Practical problem solving skills * An ability to communicate, work and live with a wide range of people * Effective planning and organising skills. For an application pack please email: warkworth@doc.govt.nz or phone the Warkworth Area Office on 09 425 7812, quoting Vacancy 62/356T. Applications close in the Warkworth Area Office at noon Monday, 08 June 2009. (http://www.conjobs.co.nz/content/view/1838/1/)
