The World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) Cameroon Seeks a Biomonitoring Intern for Online Database - WWF
For our Country Programme Office in Cameroon, we are looking for a dynamic and committed Biomonitoring Intern who will assist the Biomonitoring Program.
Location: Yaounde, Cameroon
Duration: 6 Months
Mission of the department
For the Congo Basin countries to actively contribute to the Outcomes of some Practices (Wildlife, Forests, Food, Climate & Energy, Freshwater and Governance) implemented in their respective programmes, it is important to have a monitoring programme designed and implemented accordingly. Regarding new challenges and the need to continue and extend the monitoring programme to other developed goals and objectives in alignment with the Practices, the implementation of the Congo Basin Biomonitoring Programme has been adapted. The programme has been built as an “Integrated Biomonitoring Programme” which is meant to be integrated into day-to-day activities for more efficiency. The adaptation made is supporting field programmes and countries in delivering conservation outcomes and impacts for an easy contribution to the Global Goals.
As the main strategic axis of the Biomonitoring Program, the collection of reliable and structured data includes six distinct and complementary components to help better orient, optimize and evaluate conservation activities and results. The need for collected field data and produced results to be structured, stored and managed efficiently is essential for an easy use. To assist the Biomonitoring Program in filling this need, we are looking for a Biomonitoring Intern.
Under the supervision of the Congo Basin Biomonitoring Officer, and in close collaboration with the Regional Biomonitoring Coordinator and National Teams, the Biomonitoring Intern will focus on compiling and structuring existing data and the results produced from various analyses and data sources.
