Any further information about this vacancy:

The Dolphin Research Institute (DRI) seeks to recruit a new member to our board at a very exciting phase in our 27 year history, where high achievements are coinciding with the growth and changes needed to position us for the decades ahead.   

DRI is about more than dolphins! Our science certainly focuses on marine mammals but our education and conservation work takes a whole-ecosystem approach with special attention on our wonderful bays and unique Victorian marine systems.

We are an unusual community-based conservation organisation, having a positive, strategic and balanced approach. Our science is in partnership with major universities and has driven legislative change in Victoria. We are also a major provider of marine education to schools and adults. We have a vision to establish a world-class marine conservation centre in Hastings.

The right person will be a strategic and positive contributor who understands the realities of governing a small not for profit. Perhaps and most importantly, they will have a passion for our bays and will want to support DRI’s role of helping “Victorian’s to care for their marine treasures”. It would be best to have someone who lives or has their heart, on the Mornington Peninsula and both our bays.

We are interested to recruit directors with strong skills in the Law, Fundraising, Not for Profit Management, Education and Science.

Meetings are bi-monthly (with some extra as needed) and usually at DRI in Hastings and some in Melbourne.
