Bush Heritage Australia

Location:

Hobart/Launceston (flexible location), Tasmania

  • Help to deliver on our vision of Healthy Country, Protected Forever
  • Help deliver a science program that reflects the conservation and cultural land management priorities of BHA’s Liffey Valley and Tasmanian Midlands Priority Landscapes, Palawa Country
  • Part time (3 days per week) 2 years fixed term position, flexible location (Hobart/Launceston)

This is an exceptional opportunity to make a very real contribution to the protection of Australia’s unique wildlife and their habitat.

Bush Heritage Australia, an independent, leading conservation not-for-profit, is seeking an Ecologist Tasmania.

Our vision of Healthy Country, Protected Forever sees us work where we are needed most: in areas of high conservation value with low levels of protection. With the help of our donors, we buy and manage land, so we can protect our irreplaceable landscapes and our magnificent native species forever.

Currently we own 37 reserves and we protect and help manage 11.3 million hectares of land across the country. In our mission to return the bush to good health, we provide habitat for 6,700 native species, including at least 226 threatened species.  Two proven approaches underline what we do: we carefully select, purchase and manage landscapes of high conservation value; and we work in partnership with Traditional Owners and others to achieve key conservation outcomes.

About the role:

The Ecologist Tasmania will work with relevant Bush Heritage staff, partners, and the broader scientific and natural resource management community to help deliver a science program that reflects the conservation and cultural land management priorities of BHA’s Liffey Valley and Tasmanian Midlands Priority Landscapes, Palawa Country.

The Tasmania Ecologist will be responsible for the development, implementation and review of management plans and all monitoring activities in each of the BHA reserves, as well as contribute to broader landscape programs such as the Midlands Conservation Fund (MCF) project (a joint project with the Tasmanian Land Conservancy).

The reserves within the responsibility of this position are the Liffey Valley reserves (including Oura Oura), South Esk Pine reserve and Friendly Beaches reserve. These areas are largely temperate woodland, forest and heath ecosystems.

Bush Heritage Australia actively encourages applicants from diverse groups and communities including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, those from culturally and linguistically diverse communities, women, people with diverse ability and LGBTIQ (sexuality and gender diverse and intersex) communities.
