Hawks Aloft, Inc. a 25 year old conservation organization based in Albuquerque, NM seeks a part-time (roughly 20 hours/week) Raptor Rescue Coordinator to manage our 5-year-old statewide Raptor Rescue Program. We offer a competitive salary for this permanent position. The Raptor Rescue Coordinator will work with the Raptor Rescue Dispatcher who manages the statewide hotline and a team of volunteer rescuers and drivers who assist with transport.
Must have excellent social skills and be able to work with a variety of personalities, ranging from many volunteers (drivers, rescuers, those who house birds overnight), rehabilitators, and veterinarians. Experience working with raptors preferred, as some intakes must be triaged and cared for until veterinary visits with occasional after care required. Some on-call work required, mostly dialogue with others via the telephone; however, occasional driving necessary; a vehicle is provided. This position works closely with volunteers and veterinarians to determine the best facility to care for each bird, occasionally for non-raptor species. Other requirements include helping with outreach and social media to promote program, maintaining a database of rehabilitators, and assisting with organizing our biannual statewide conference. Good writing skills a huge plus, as we work to expand the program and secure additional funds. Reports to the Executive Director. Please send a resume, cover letter, and three references to gail (at) hawksaloft.org
No phone calls or personal visits please.
