Description

About Us
The Ancient Forest Foundation has established a unique ecology portal to encourage forest conservation - wildforests.co. The project's concept was inspired by the UN's declaration of 2011 as "International Year of Forests". A broad range of forest ecozones including boreal forests, temperate forests and equatorial rainforests have been documented by our project contributors - field biologists, professional photographers and talented amateurs. Our content reflects biodiversity from over 400 protected areas in more than 90 countries.

Hiring Needs
The wildforests project is an attempt to make a persuasive case for forest conservation and stimulate the public's engagement on sustainable forest use. Staff writers are needed to enhance our present content on global forests. Our project aims to provide interesting summaries of forest ecology and credible analysis of forest governance. We encourage applicants with good research skills and a passion for conservation journalism to apply.
