Job title:  Volunteer Graphic Designer
Main duty station:  Hanoi 

Organization background: 

The trade in wildlife products in Asia in the form of meat, pets, trophies, and medicine is escalating at an alarming rate. This unprecedented boom is due to a combination of factors,  including habitat loss;  road-building  that  links  forests  to  markets;  a  growing  human  population;  growing  urban wealth;  and  commercial  trade  across  the  region  that  is  increasingly well  organized,  though  often illegal.  

WCS  is  addressing  this  issue  through  scientific  assessments  and working  closely with partners  in applying practical solutions on the ground. Through in-depth knowledge and sensitivity to complex issues,  we  propose  solutions  that  address  the  symptoms  and  underlying  causes  of  the  intense increase in hunting and wildlife trade while also supporting the livelihoods of rural communities.

•  Take part in any communication and project activities if required
