Job Notice: Wind Campaign Coordinator
American Bird Conservancy (ABC) is looking for a high-energy individual who is able to work effectively in partnership to address the impacts of wind development on birds. ABC supports wind power when it is bird-smart, and believes that birds and wind power can co-exist. Bird-smart wind power employs careful siting, operation and construction mitigation, bird monitoring, and compensation, to reduce and redress any unavoidable bird mortality and habitat loss.
The Wind Campaign Coordinator will develop and coordinate ABC’s bird-smart wind campaign to minimize the impact to birds caused by the development of wind power. The Coordinator will work closely with other ABC program staff and with supervision from Vice President for Conservation Advocacy. The work will focus on establishing mandatory regulations to protect birds at wind farms; addressing the most poorly sited wind projects; and engaging with conservation plans and regulatory processes to protect endangered species, eagles, and other birds.
The position requires excellent communication and project management experience, organizational and writing skills, and a broad knowledge of ABC’s mission, objectives, and programs.
