Palmerston North’s new Central Energy Trust Wildbase Recovery provides shelter and care to New Zealand’s most endangered and treasured native wildlife. They recover from illness and injury in our specifically designed rehabilitation centre under the care of Massey University’s Wildbase staff before being returned to the wild.
CET Wildbase Recovery also provides the community with a conservation education experience like no other. Locals, visitors, schools and community organisations have the opportunity to see conservation in action; and learn how they can make a difference to the future of New Zealand’s native wildlife. That’s where you come in…
You’ll be working with a diverse range of audiences from volunteers, to school groups, tourists and visitors, and local community groups, to understand the issues, barriers and ways we can protect our native wildlife. Your skills with communicating and creating awareness materials for a range of media will be invaluable. This exciting role is the perfect opportunity for you to create awareness of native wildlife in New Zealand and develop new approaches to engage community interest.
Your ability to build relationships and work well with internal and external stakeholders is essential in ensuring the smooth and successful running of our wildlife rehabilitation centre. Your experience in teaching and curriculum development, particularly in the area of the natural environment, will assist in creating educational programmes that complement and enrich the learning of visitors.
