Growing WildTrack: Donor management and fundraising
WildTrack (www.wildtrack.org) is a multi-award-winning non-profit organization based in North Carolina, USA, but will projects across 5 continents, from Amur tiger in Asia, to rhino in Africa, to puma in the Americas. We monitor endangered species using a unique combination of cutting-edge technology and traditional ecological knowledge. We focus on non-invasive technologies to protect animals and deliver the most reliable data.
We are growing our donor base and would like to find a volunteer with a proven track record in developing the donor base for non-profits. If this proved to be successful we would consider offering a position with WildTrack.
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
About WILDTRACK INC

WildTrack is a non-profit wildlife research organisation with a unique approach to conservation. Our Mission is to develop and apply non-invasive and cost-effective methods of monitoring endangered species to learn how to protect them effectively.
If you have Wordpress development skills, or app building skills, and want to contribute to an innovative new approach to wildlife conservation, we want to hear from you!
WildTrack was founded in 2004 by Drs Sky Alibhai and Zoe Jewell after ten years collecting data from tracking black rhino in Africa. Their data showed that invasive monitoring (darting and collaring) was negatively impacting on female fertility. Working with indigenous trackers they instead developed a footprint identification technique (FIT) that is able to identify species, individuals, sex and age-class just from footprints.
WildTrack now has a network of more than 25 species projects around the world using FIT ranging from Amur tiger and giant panda in China, to cheetah and rhino in Namibia. We're now expanding our data collection to develop a citizen science network that will allow everyone who sees footprints to be able to contribute to saving species. We're looking for experienced Wordpress Development volunteers to help with data management on our website (www.conservationFIT.org) and app development (iOS and/or Android) volunteers to help us design an app that will guide citizen scientists through our data collection protocol. There are potential opportunities to be funded along the line as we build this network if this is successful.
