Mapping and storytelling for priority forest landscapes: Support build communicational tools (i.e. programme brochure, ArcGIS Story Map, project scorecards) for the Forest Programme’s top three priority landscapes in the Americas: the Atlantic Forest, the Gran Chaco and the High Andes. This will include collecting and collating geographic data and audio-visual materials, producing maps, working on at least one ArcGIS Story Map, and writing accompanying Story Map text.

The ideal candidate will:
Be a fourth year university student of biology, ecology, geography or another related field.
Be familiar with GIS and/or Google Earth mapping software and processes, aware of strategies and challenges in the field of biodiversity conservation, deforestation and reforestation trends.
Have the ability to coordinate a wide range of diverse tasks concurrently and priorities effectively to meet deadlines. Ability to act often with minimal supervision, but also work in a team.
Have excellent interpersonal communication skills including ability to explain often complex technical issues in an understandable way to a variety of internal and external audiences.
