The PRCF is a non-government, non-profit, and non-membership organization established in 1995. The PRCF endeavours to support biodiversity conservation programs that target particular species or habitats, and community-based programs that target rural people in developing countries, particularly communities living adjacent to protected areas, remnant forests, and degraded lands and grasslands. Through its conservation and development work, the PRC Foundation fosters activities with potential to sustain the natural environment and uphold the cultural or social identity of rural communities. PRCF programs and polices therefore encourage local people to preserve and enhance their self-respect and identity.

Project activities include targeted forest habitat restoration interventions for the Critically Endangered Cao Vit Gibbon, conservation activities with local communities for globally and nationally conservation significant species, payments for biodiversity services, collaborative community-based natural resource management and development of sustainable livelihoods activities. The incumbent will need to be adaptable, innovative and willing to take on new challenges to address PRCF?s goals through our diversified portfolio of conservation initiatives.

The position will be based 50% of the time in Trung Khanh District, Cao Bang Province (close to the Cao Vit Gibbon Conservation Area) and at either the PRCF Office in Hanoi or other field sites in Tuyen Quang and Bac Kan Provinces when necessary.
