Exciting opportunity to develop and deliver a holistic program of delimitation, containment, localized eradication and mitigation for the highly invasive and toxic Asian toad (Duttaphrynus melanostictus) in eastern Madagascar. The Asian toad is thought to have been introduced to Madagascar around 2010 and has more than doubled its distribution since its discovery in 2014: now covering an estimated area of 220 km2 centered around Madagascar’s main port city of Toamasina. The toad poses a significant ecological threat to Madagascar, one of the world’s top biodiversity hotspots, and an economic and health threat to its people. The position requires 10+ years’ experience in invasive species management, preferably with specific amphibian experience. The role will involve collaborating with multiple and varied stakeholders from the Malagasy government, to funders, to the local population living in the affected areas. The Program Coordinator will work with the program’s Technical Advisory Group (TAG) to develop an effective, multi-pronged approach to mitigate the impacts of the Asian toad in Madagascar and will be the primary person responsible for the program’s delivery.
