UPDATE: THIS ECOTOUR LEADER POSITION HAS BEEN FILLED!
Do you love frogs, travel and the outdoors? If so, we may have a great opportunity for you. SAVE THE FROGS! is accepting applications for an Ecotour Leader to assist us on the June 2018 SAVE THE FROGS! Ecuador Ecotour, which takes place June 14th to 25th, 2018. The successful leader would join the ecotour at no cost, and potentially have international airfare covered; if you are an exceptional applicant, we may even be able to pay you on top of all that! You will be assisting SAVE THE FROGS1 Founder & Trip Leader Dr. Kerry Kriger. You will be expected to assist with field excursions; help keep participants happy; coordinate with ecolodges, restaurants and drivers; and assist with anything else that comes up related to ensuring the safety and happiness of participants. Please see the application below if you think you would make an excellent Ecotour Leader.
Chelsea Carson led the 2016 and 2017 SAVE THE FROGS! Ecuador Ecotours but won't be able to take part in 2018. Are you the right person to carry on where she left off?
* In excellent physical shape
* Plenty of travel experience
* Knowledge of amphibians and ecology
* Familiarity with SAVE THE FROGS! history, programs and culture
* Knowledge of Ecuadorian culture
* Ability to speak English
* Ability to speak Spanish
* Ability to communicate with, lead and get along with ecotourists
* Wilderness medicine knowledge
We don't expect you to have all these qualities...though it would be greatif you did! Please do apply even if you are lacking in certain areas (and in the meantime work to improve those missing parts!).
Best of luck!
