Proﬁle on Jobs at Two Major Non-Proﬁt Organizations Inside Defenders of Wildlife and The Nature Conservancy By Danielle M. Angeline
With the release of the Oscar winning documentary, “The Inconvenient Truth,” former Vice-President Al Gore, as well as the scientiﬁc community world-wide, has brought forth an unprecedented awareness that the time to take action on environmental issues is now. Stemming from this knowledge, and according to the U.S. Department of Labor/Bureau of Labor Statistics (www.bls.gov) and the Occupational Outlook Handbook, there will be a steady increase in environmental jobs through 2014. One environmental organization that concurs with this data is, The Nature Conservancy (www.nature.org) that has a globally diverse workforce of 3500 employees (720 of whom are scientists) based in all 50 states and more than 30 countries. “Our structure is designed to promote greater global conservation through eight conservation regions, a conservation strategies group, and our Worldwide Ofﬁce,” says Sara Meyer, Director of Human Resources. With projects in every state and an internationally, The Nature Conservancy (TNC) is committed to sharing their resources and expertise with partners, and among their many programs to facilitate conservation on a world-wide scale. “As individuals, governments, and both the non-proﬁt and for-proﬁt sectors become more aware of the threats posed by issues such as climate change, habitat loss, deforestation, and over-ﬁshing, there will be an increased demand for people to work in areas designed to counteract these forces. The relationship of our environment to human well-being is becoming clearer to people and will result in greater demand for people to work in conservation and on a variety of environmental issues,” Ms. Meyer’s claims. Mr. William Lutz, Director of Communications at Defenders of Wildlife comments, “The future of green jobs is increasing because of environmental awareness and the challenges we are facing. Increasing revenues and a proenvironmental Congress will make a difference in allocation of funds and make companies able to expand their staff.” According to their website, www.defenders.org, Defenders of Wildlife is dedicated to the protection of all native wild animals and plants in their natural communities. Their programs focus on what scientists consider two of the most serious environmental threats to the planet: the accelerating rate of extinction of species and the associated loss of biological diversity, and habitat alteration and destruction. Defenders of Wildlife also advocate new approaches to wildlife conservation that will help keep species from becoming endangered. “We have hundreds of programs from land, government, and species preservation
to international efforts to preserve species with ofﬁces in seven states,” reports Mr. Lutz. These programs encourage the protection of entire ecosystems and interconnected habitats while protecting predators that serve as indicator [A species whose status provides information on the overall condition of the ecosystem and of other species in that ecosystem. They reﬂect the quality and changes in environmental conditions as well as aspects of community composition. Source: Global Biodiversity Assessment GBA] species for ecosystem health. The Nature Conservancy is also a leading conservation organization working around the world to protect ecologically important lands and waters for nature and people. The Conservancy – protecting nature, preserving life – works to preserve the plants, animals, and natural communities that represent the diversity of life on Earth by protecting the lands and waters they need to survive in the states and around the world. The Conservancy focuses on the conservation of coral reefs, forests, freshwater and marine ecosystems, and rainforests. Currently, the Conservancy is focusing on reaching the “2015 Goal” - to ensure the effective conservation of places that represent at least 10% of every major habitat type of Earth by 2015. Both Defenders of Wildlife and The Nature Conservancy, host a variety of jobs from top executive positions, to volunteers. Defenders of Wildlife, William Lutz says, “Our upper level management consists of the President and Senior Vice President for Conservation policy, followed by various Vice President positions with their own issue area of focus with land, ﬁeld, or international conservation. We also employ in the areas of Program Staff, Legal, Government Relations, Foundation/ Fundraising, and State Wildlife grant plans, of which all have Coordinators and administrative support staff.” Sara Meyer, Director of Human Resources states, “Our success depends on the people that work for and with The Nature Conservancy. We actively recruit and strive to retain people from a variety of backgrounds and experiences and provide an environment that values the pursuit of innovation and excellence.” TNC employs many scientists, land conservation experts, and policy associates in areas such as marine, freshwater, invasive species, ﬁre, and forests, they also have position in marketing, information systems, ﬁnance, legal, and general operations. “We employ people in most general business areas in addition to people with specialized conservation skills.”
directory – lists educational programs in Environmental Engineering, Wildlife Sciences, Environmental Education and Forestry, to name a few. Environmental organizations, like The Nature Conservancy and Defenders of Wildlife, seek candidates that not only carry education credentials, but have also demonstrated an active interest in the environment through intern and volunteership. “The Nature Conservancy seeks talented and self-directed professionals with a strong commitment to our mission and values. Education and experience requirements vary greatly, based on the position,” informs Ms. Meyers. Some positions [at TNC] require advanced degrees and substantial amounts of experience while other positions at more of an entry-level require minimal education and/or experience. “Volunteering with an organization is a great way to get to know more about an organization and ﬁnd out what career opportunities they may have. Volunteering can lead directly to employment in some cases,” Sara Meyer adds. She also offers this advice, “Setting up informational interviews with key staff in the speciﬁc area where someone would like to work is also beneﬁcial. Not only does it enable the person to make contacts within the organization, but the person also will gain information about how the hiring process works.” Mr. Lutz says, “With Defenders of Wildlife, it depends on the position title, experience and degree requirements, but we look at candidates who have experience with international dealings, congressional dealings with government, and demonstrate a working history of producing comprehensive and detailed reports.” He also suggests getting involved with other non-proﬁt organizations such as National Parks because, “Volunteering only makes a candidates resume stand out and that much stronger. Additionally, an advanced degree in International conservation, Public Administration, Wildlife Administration and Wildlife Conservation ﬁts well with our organization.” Whether you are a recent college graduate or a mid-life career changer, job seekers should visit The Nature Conservancy (www.nature.org/careers)website frequently for current job openings. “We handle each opening separately so candidates need to apply for any position they’re interested in being considered. Being able to articulate the connection between an individual’s experience and the requirements of the job is critical,” recommends Sara Meyers. Individual departments may also advertise in various trade magazines (e.g.; Chronicles of Philanthropy) or websites (e.g.; Lawjobs. com) and alumni associations. Information on how to apply is included in all job postings, and the process varies based on location.

National Association of Environmental Professionals Hosts a Successful Careers Seminar
Countdown to Cool Savings this Summer EPA (Washington, D.C. - May 23, 2007) - The heat of summer may be right around the corner, but consumers and small businesses can stay cool and protect the environment by following ﬁve recommendations from EPA. “This summer, you don’t have to let sweltering temperatures and sky-high energy bills get under your skin,” said EPA Administrator Stephen L. Johnson. “By taking a few simple energy-efﬁcient steps, Americans can beat the heat while keeping more money in their pockets.” The average family spends $1,900 a year on energy bills, nearly half of which goes to heating and cooling. With a few steps like seasonal maintenance of energy-efﬁcient heating and cooling equipment, consumers can save on their energy bills and help reduce the risks of global warming. EPA recommends the following 5 steps to help consumers and small businesses count down to a cooler planet and a more energyefﬁcient home: 5. Find and seal air leaks that cause drafts and make your cooling system work overtime. Sealing and insulating your home can prevent the loss of cooled air and help save up to 10 percent on your energy bills each year. 4. Look for the Energy Star when purchasing cooling products for your home. Products such as room air-conditioners and programmable thermostats that have earned the Energy Star operate more efﬁciently, which saves money and help protect the environment. 3. Schedule annual, pre-season maintenance checkups with a licensed contractor to ensure that your cooling system is operating efﬁciently and safely. Be sure to clean or change your system’s air ﬁlter regularly (generally once a month). 2. Install a programmable thermostat and use your ceiling fans wisely. Turn your thermostat up several degrees when you are away (and your home doesn’t need to be kept as cool). And use your ceiling fans only when you are in the room to save even more. 1. Visit our interactive web-based tool, Energy Star @ home, to learn more ways to make your home energy-efﬁcient. Homeowners can see where they’re doing well, ﬁnd areas for improvement and learn how they can use energy more efﬁciently to save money and enjoy year-round comfort in their home. Homeowners will also be able to share their home improvement stories or read and learn about others who have saved through energy-efﬁcient upgrades. Many of these same tips for consumers are also useful for small businesses. In fact, with energy saving improvements throughout their facilities, small businesses can save up to 25 percent or higher on their energy bills. EPA started the Energy Star program in 1992 as a voluntary market-based partnership to reduce greenhouse gas emissions through increased energy efﬁciency. Today, Energy Star offers businesses and consumers energy efﬁcient solutions to save energy, money and protect the environment for future generations. More than 9,000 organizations participate in the Energy Star program. In 2006 alone, Americans, with the help of Energy Star, saved $14 billion in energy costs and prevented greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to those from 25 million vehicles.

Panelists Give Insight Into Their Professions at the Association’s Annual Conference
Panelist Jim Yawn speaks to seminar participants
Orlando, Florida What makes a careers seminar successful? It is connecting job seekers with premier employers and providing job seekers inside tips on how to begin or advance their careers. We did that and more with a well-attended, informative Environmental Careers Seminar at the National Association of Environmental Professionals 32nd Annual Conference in Orlando during Earth Day week, April 2007. Brian Moyer, immediate past-president of NAEP, welcomed attendees and kicked off the careers event. He described the many career development beneﬁts NAEP provides for members. Mr. Moyer also recognized the Environmental Career Center (publisher of the Green Careers Journal) for coordinating this year’s event for environmental professionals. The NAEP Career Development Committee chair and Environmental Career Center (ECC) Director, John Esson, moderated the session comprised of ﬁve environmental professionals. Presenters represented a diverse group of environmental employers, from Disney Imagineering, WRS Infrastructure & Environment, Inc., South Florida Water Management District, Parsons, and NASA Kennedy Space Center/Dynamac. Our ﬁve panelists addressed topics including: •Preparation for an environmental career •Personal attributes, skills, and education employers look for in a job applicant •Current and future employment opportunities •Inside tips for advancing your career Each speaker provided their own unique insight, expertise and experience with respect to their career and organization. Speciﬁcally the speakers had this advice. M. Rebecca Bolt is a Wildlife Ecologist with Dynamac Corporation at the Kennedy Space Center. “What does Becky do all day?” Among other things, she helps keep the launch schedule on track. It’s those owls and bats that sometimes ﬁnd NASA facilities and launch pads a comfortable habitat to hang out. How did Becky get her foot in the door? She volunteered for www.environmentalcareer.com
two years and worked hours that got her noticed. Although Ms. Bolt emphasized her work schedule ﬁnds her primarily in the ﬁeld, often times up to her knees in water, she pointed out that to excel you must be an effective communicator and get along with people. Becky’s responsibility is wildlife habitat. She enthusiastically provides aspiring Wildlife Ecologists with a unique, personal perspective to a career as a Wildlife Biologist. Her enthusiasm is contagious. Ron Deverman is the Director of Project Development and Environment for Parsons and the Vice President of NAEP. He is also a published poet. Founded in 1944, Parsons is one of the largest 100% employeeowned engineering and construction companies in the United States. Ron concurred with the other panelists that honesty and integrity were two primary attributes that employers, including Parsons, look for in the hiring process. In addition, Parson’s looks for “creative thinkers” and problem solvers with superior communication skills who “get it done”. He strongly encouraged the audience to “welcome all responsibility” and to “take the initiative”. Mr. Deverman emphasized the importance of membership in professional organizations such as NAEP to network and staying current with evolving technologies and issues. Charmae L. Hillman, SPHR, is the Senior Human Resources Professional for the South Florida Water Management District, based in West Palm Beach, Florida. The SFWMD manages and protects regional water resources in 16 counties by balancing and improving water quality, ﬂood control, natural systems and water supply. The district is currently working on hundreds of projects stretching from the Florida Keys north to Orlando with the majority of the staff working in management and engineering sectors. The district employs over 1,700 people with headquarters in West Palm Beach and ﬁeld stations/ofﬁces in 14 cities. Environmental careers with the SFWMD range from May-June 2007
A New Way to Bring Sustainability Education to Your Institution Environic Foundation International Provides a Practical, Scalable Course by Kat Godfrey Sustainable Societies, a program of the Environic Foundation International (EFI) and its partners, addresses two pressing needs during the United Nations’ Decade of Education for Sustainable Development: universal sustainability issue literacy and development of student skills to design sustainable, locally appropriate strategies. Undertaken to respond to calls for action voiced at the ﬁrst National Conference on Science, Policy and the Environment (Washington, DC, December 2000) and timed to coincide with the UN’s declared “Decade of Education” (2005-2014), the Sustainable Societies course prepares the next generation of leaders to analyze and successfully, sustainably address the complex problems enveloping our nation and the world today. The course explores the twenty-ﬁve issues that have been identiﬁed as the most critical global issues over the next twenty to thirty years, according to the United Nations Commission for Sustainable Development. EFI determined that those social, economic and environmental issues must be considered equally important if education for true sustainability is to be taught and practiced. In addition to the familiar concerns of water, energy, transportation, land, poverty, and atmosphere (climate), many other issues, from agriculture and biotechnology to cultures and decision-making to trade and health, also enrich and injure both man and nature. The course’s twenty-ﬁve issues serve as an “alphabet” for sustainability, the shared understanding of which could make real, meaningful communication and collaboration among peoples from diverse cultures and backgrounds possible. The cross-disciplinary issues, cases and sustainability strategies contained in Sustainable Societies also make the course relevant to students in the faculties or colleges of the social sciences, natural sciences, agriculture, engineering, health, business and law. The course is like a “house with twenty-ﬁve front doors”; examination of any issue naturally
leads one to explore the connections it has with the other issues. Sustainable Societies combines the use of universal sustainability issue material collected and provided by United Nations agencies with local issue material developed by each participating university or country to provide students with an understanding of social, economic and environmental issues at both the strategic and tactical scales. A local case study is used to initiate this learning process and a case study serves as the catalyst for the instructor
While Sustainable Societies facilitates student exploration of the issues and sustainability strategies at local, regional and global scales, its universal format and the ease with which it can be customized with local learning materials means it can be used on a small scale within virtually any department, throughout a university or in a network of institutions. Using a student-centered pedagogical approach to learning and providing a universally applicable course structure that facilitates multi-institution sharing while being customizable by each institution, the course meets both local and global education priorities. Sustainable Societies is designed to be relevant, usable, replicable and measurable and will be available in various modes, as course materials can be provided in hard copy, CD-ROM and/or website-based formats. Within days, we will observe and celebrate “Earth Day”, recommitting and expanding efforts on behalf of what is now called “sustainability”. Within weeks of the ﬁrst “Earth Day” in 1970, Midwest university graduate students incorporated the Environic Foundation International (EFI). With encouragement from the United Nations, they organized the ﬁrst International Youth Conference on the Environment in 1971 in Ontario, precursor to the UN’s own Conference on the Environment in 1972. Their research and education foundation has long held workshops on “environics”, the study of conditions, both tangible and intangible, as its members pursued their professions mindful that social, economic and environmental factors are linked. In this new century, those former students have committed themselves to ensuring that practical education is imparted to this next generation of students.

to facilitate students’ further exploration of the issues and their interrelationships at local, regional and global scales. The course concludes with the students working together to design integrated sustainability strategies, which can be used in their own locales. Designed to be a one- or two-semester undergraduate course, the course complements existing discipline-based programs of study rather than replacing them, and is being developed for both instructor-led and website-based delivery. It can be introduced rapidly into colleges and universities without major restructuring of existing faculties and programs of study, as its design does not require individual faculty members to become experts in the multiple subject areas.
After several years of extensive research into how well existing “environmental” education programs encompassed multiple disciplines and just how sustainability education could be developed to be both universal and locally useful at the same time, EFI introduced the concept of Sustainable Societies at a three-day workshop during the 2002 World Summit on Sustainable Development in Johannesburg, continued on page 15

Assistantship - The Department of Wildlife and Fisheries has a doctoral research assistantship available to study Lake Restoration in Agricultural Landscapes. This assistantship provides an annual stipend of $20k plus tuition remission. The position is currently available and will remain open until a suitable candidate is employed. This assistantship speciﬁcally involves monitoring and evaluating the effects of the implementation of various aquatic plant management practices in lakes of the Mississippi Alluvial Valley. These lakes were historically periodically ﬂooded by the Mississippi River or one of the smaller rivers of the Mississippi Alluvial Valley. The construction of ﬂood control structures and agricultural improvements have signiﬁcantly altered the ecology and hydrology of these systems, encouraging the invasion of noxious aquatic plant species. We are attempting to document the efﬁcacy of using biological and chemical controls on these invasive plants and the effect of these control efforts on the broader aquatic ecology and limnology of these lakes. It is anticipated that the student will develop a dissertation that will incorporate both ﬁeld studies and experimental manipulations in mesocosms. Qualiﬁcations include a M.S. in the biological sciences, ecology, natural resources, wildlife, ﬁsheries, or related
ﬁelds. Candidates should have skills in aquatic ecology, limnology, or ﬁsheries ecology (broadly deﬁned) in addition to interest or experience working with ecological restoration in an agricultural framework. Successful candidate should be highly motivated with strong academic and experiential credentials. The Ph.D. student will work with a collaborating team of faculty scientists including Drs. Eric Dibble (ﬁsheries ecologist) and Todd Tietjen (limnologist-ecologist).

Field Assistant - Researchers at the University of Montana’s College of Forestry and Conservation seek to hire a ﬁeld assistant for a study of the effectiveness of native-seed mixes for revegetating decommissioned roads on Forest Service lands in the northern Rockies. Forest managers are currently debating which road revegetation techniques best balance cost, erosion control, and protection of native plant
communities. Historically, managers have used non-native species to revegetate decommissioned roads because they quickly cover and protect the soil surface and are often readily available and inexpensive. However, revegetating with non-native species can inhibit re-establishment of native perennials and result in the invasion of adjacent native plant communities. While over 2000 miles of roads are decommissioned on Forest Service lands each year, few researchers have compared the success of seeding with non-native versus native seed mix. This study will identify the species that are most effective for restoring and rehabilitating native plant communities on decommissioned roads in the northern Rockies. Sampling will occur in the Kootenai and Clearwater National Forests on decommissioned logging roads during July and August 2007. Field assistants will be responsible for collecting data on soil characteristics, disturbance intensity, and plant abundance, and for preparing and seeding study plots. The locations of the sites and the nature of the work will require extended periods in the ﬁeld (up to 8 days), camping, and limited access to facilities (e.g., showers, telephone, email). Field Assistants may have the option of returning for a second season to help with resampling the sites in 2008. Salary - $10-14.50/hr depending on experience. To apply, please send the following materials to Ashley Grant at firstname.lastname@example.org: 1) letter of interest, 2) resume, and 3) names of and contact information for three references.

Researcher - MSc or PhD position available in the Department of Plant Sciences --”Regional modeling of greenhouse gas fluxes and sustainability of biofuel systems”. The current concerns over a secure supply of oil and the ever-increasing greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere have led to renewed interest in energy from plant biomass. However, there are also a series of concerns, apprehensions and challenges associated with a shift to a heavier reliance on biomass energy for our energy-thirsty society. In particular, the potential conﬂicts between the use of crops and cropland for biofuel versus food, the sustainability of biofuel cropping systems, and the greenhouse gas emissions during the production of biomass for energy production are questioned. These uncertainties exemplify the need for a full assessment of the advantages and drawbacks of bioenergy before fully embarking on this new energy pathway. The student in this position will use ecosystem process models to simulate gas exchange in different biofuel cropping systems under different soil, climate, and management conditions. For this project, we are looking for a person who can help us to (1) translate typical Californian farming management into ecosystem models, (2) run the ecosystem models to quantify the uncertainty around model predictions, and (3) analyze the GHG budgets and evaluate the potential for bio-fuel cropping systems at a regional scale. Requirements: Bachelors or Master degree in life sciences (agronomy, biochemistry, ecology,...); High level of knowledge and expertise in working with Microsoft Excel; Solid background in mathematics (basic calculus), introductory statistics, biogeochemistry and ecosystem sciences. Experience with a high-level programming language (such as VBA), GIS, or databases is a plus. For more information or questions, please contact Dr. J. Six at email@example.com.
