Rewilding Institute Seeks Development Director
The Rewilding Institute invites support and applicants for a new position as Development Director with our small but visionary group.
The Rewilding Development Director will serve and strengthen the existing staff and board of The Rewilding Institute. The Development Director will be TRI’s lead fund-raiser and will identify and communicate with potential sources of support for rewilding on-ground work and publications. The Development Director will also assist in management of staff.
The Rewilding Development Director will build a rewilding speakers bureau, drawing from the Rewilding Leadership Council we’ve already created, and arrange talks (online or in-person) at colleges and universities, natural history clubs, outings groups, elder hostels, and more. Our Development Director will also assist our Digital Director Jack Humphrey and Executive Director John Davis and board members with social media, podcasts, and face-to-face meetings with key conservationists.
The Development Director will report to our Executive Director but serve also the Board of Directors, all of whom are deeply involved in on-ground conservation and restoration work. She or he will often serve as a liaison with other conservation groups and enlist other activists in generating comments and actions on issues pertaining to wild places and wild creatures.
Though starting as part-time (location flexible, likely working from a home office but traveling occasionally) this will ultimately be a full-time position. Salary will be dependent on success in bringing in more resources. We are also considering proposals for ad hoc development assistance, commission-based fundraising, etc.
With a good Development Director to enhance our team, The Rewilding Institute is poised to become a leader throughout North America and globally for rewilding at all scales, from local species restoration projects to reconnecting continental wildways with full arrays of native species.
Please send letters of interest to Executive Director John Davis and Board President Susan Morgan:
The Rewilding Institute (TRI) mission is to explore and share tactics and strategies to advance continental-scale conservation and restoration in North America and beyond. We focus on the need for large carnivores and protected wildways for their movement; and we offer a bold, scientifically credible, practically achievable, and hopeful vision for the future of wild Nature and human civilization on planet Earth.
