The Chatham Islands Area is seeking two enthusiastic and experienced persons to become members of the Biodiversity Assets Team. The purpose of these positions is to carry out various biodiversity programme duties including the management of bird and other fauna species located in the Chatham Islands Area. This includes work on the main Chatham Island and periods on both Rangatira and Mangere Islands. There is particular focus on monitoring and management of threatened birds in the south Chatham forests including taiko and parea as well as island fauna programmes where monitoring and management of iconic species including black robin, Forbes parakeet, Chatham Island Petrel and NZ shore plover are a focus. Translocation programmes presently in progress are for Chatham Island petrel and taiko. The work also involves participation in biosecurity procedures to eliminate risks to island habitats and species. Applicants to be successful ideally need to have a background in science or natural heritage management with appropriate experience in monitoring and handling fauna species.
