Any further information about this vacancy:
Mandurah Wildlife Rescue is a registered environmental and education charity with the main operational purpose of rehabiliating injured and orphaned wildlife back to the bush. MWR has been operational for 10 years and currently is run completely by volunteers.
In 2016 the Board developed an ambitious strategic plan to prioritise education and adopt a business model which make us less reliant on public funding. In 2019 we will build an onsite education centre for training and education for students, community and corporate organisations. Plans over the next 5 years include tourism, wildlife research and expansive onsite environmental education.
We have strong community and government support but need assistance to drive our new vision and become financially self sustainable. We are particularly looking for directors who have skills in business development, law, finance, planning and project management.
This is your opportunity to be part of a valued community service which could become a significant regional wildlife centre and attraction for the Peel region.
