Selamatkan Yaki (SY) is a research, education and conservation programme operating under the Wild Planet Trust (previously Whitley Wildlife Conservation Trust), UK and local foundation Yayasan Selamatkan Yaki Indonesia (YSYI) whose goal is to reduce the threats to the Sulawesi crested black macaque (Macaca nigra) and its habitat. SY is seeking a highly motivated and qualified individual to help lead a dynamic local team while coordinating a diversity of research and conservation projects. The Programme Coordinator (PC) will lead on an established research project which monitors the status and threats of wild macaques, and the continuation of an integrated wildlife trade mitigation strategy. The role will be based in North Sulawesi, Indonesia and while it will initially start on a 12-month contract, we will be ideally seeking a 24-month arrangement as the role requires significant commitment for project development, implementation and evaluation.
