Duties Include:
  • Conducting research to obtain factual information and authentic detail for blog content.

 

  • Choosing subject matter that interests readers and our target audiences.

  • Working with editors and managers to shape material to be publishable on our blog.

  • Performing blog maintenance activities such as updating plugins when/if necessary. (We will teach you how to do this.)

 

  • Providing web analytics on content performance and comment feedback. (We will teach you how to do this.)

Skill Set Needed:
  • WORDSMITH - You are a writer who knows how to craft crisp, engaging, and positive copy. We’re looking for someone who believes the glass is half full and knows there is always hope when it comes to conservation and animal welfare issues. If you have a gift for writing humorous, light-hearted, and conversational prose, this position is for you!

 

  • CULTURAL CRITIQUER - You know your way around the internet and keep up to date on all the latest conservation news and events.

  • STORY-TELLER - You know the ropes when it comes to the blogosphere. We're looking for someone who can sing loud and clear with gibbon-like crescendo across the forest on the conservation issues that matter most to human and non-human primates. If you have a gift for creating compelling stories, let's connect and get things going!
