Direct Protection to Forests and Wildlife

Wildlife Alliance is an international NGO dedicated to preserving Southeast Asia rainforests and wildlife. We are seeking qualified expat candidates to fill a new position of Chief Fundraising Officer that combines strong management and strong journalistic skills. Come to join a pioneering team of dynamic leaders in conservation who are working to preserve Cambodia's natural heritage and the future of planet Earth!
The organization is very action oriented and has proven many measurable results over the past 10 years in forest protection, wildlife and forest rehabilitation, and poverty alleviation.
