Seabird Conservation Warden needed for Malta's threatened Yelkouan Shearwaters

BirdLife Malta is looking for one full-time Seabird Conservation Warden to join its international team in the LIFE Arcipelagu Garnija Project to carry out a range of duties related with seabird conservation in Malta. This will include: rodent control, monitoring of colonies, public awareness activities on colony sites, compilation of data, mapping, and reporting.

The Project Warden will be based in BirdLife Malta's offices and work in relevant Natura 2000 sites.

BirdLife Malta’s LIFE Project Arċipelagu Garnija aims at securing the Maltese Islands for the globally Vulnerable Yelkouan Shearwater Puffinus yelkouan, of where approximately 10% of the species’ global population can be found. Protection of this local population is important on the global scale, especially with the drastic declines Yelkouan Shearwaters have been facing over the last decades.
