Carnivore Coexistence Advocate

WildEarth Guardians (Guardians) seeks a full-time Carnivore Coexistence Advocate (Advocate) to lead our efforts to protect native carnivores (think wolves, grizzly bears and mountain lions, oh my) on federal public lands. For far too long, and as an accepted practice, carnivores have been killed to make way for livestock on public lands. This “management” of wildlife-livestock conflicts is, at times, conducted even before any such conflicts occur. We believe that native carnivores have an inherent right to exist in the wild and that the federal government has an obligation to protect and ensure habitat for these species. The Advocate will be at the front line of the effort to get federal land management agencies – namely, the US Forest Service and the Bureau of Land Management – to ban the use of cruel and indiscriminate tools on lands they manage as well as to enact regulations for mandatory non-lethal management practices for wildlife-livestock conflicts. The Advocate will also be responsible for identifying and engaging in high-profile livestock-wildlife conflicts in the Northern Rockies and for developing strategies that leverage these examples as a catalyst for change.
