WWF offices in Bolivia, Brasil, Paraguay and Argentina as well as WWF International have come together to design a wildlife connect initiative for the Pantanal-Chaco (PACHA) landscape. This initiative aims to protect, manage and restore the connectivity of landscapes, thus enabling large-scale wildlife movements and linking wildlife (especially jaguar) and people. By ensuring movement is possible we will enable wildlife to adapt to a changing climate, thus creating long term viability for wildlife and people on earth.
Objective of the Consultancy: WWF is looking for a project assistant consultant to provide technical support for the design of this initiative. The consultant will play a key role in helping to put together the documentation and information needed for this process as well as supporting WWF`s work with jaguar.
