The Timber Wolf Alliance Coordinator is a part-time position open to individuals willing and qualified to support a non-profit organization dedicated to using science-based information to promote an ecologically-functional wolf population in areas of suitable habitat and to promoting human coexistence with wolves.
Individuals who serve as coordinator are responsible for a variety of communication, organizational, and educational tasks. The coordinator is supported by Northland College student employees, volunteers who serve on the Timber Wolf Advisory Council, and the Executive Director of the Sigurd Olson Environmental Institute, but much of the work is completed independently with little direct supervision.
