Deputy Director (m/f/d) of the Endangered Primate Rescue Center at Cuc Phuong National Park, Vietnam

Zoo Leipzig GmbH / Vietnam

Zoo Leipzig currently offers an exciting and unique opportunity for a highly dedicated and motivated person with an affinity for primate conservation to join an international team of passionate conservationists at the Endangered Primate Rescue Center (EPRC) in Vietnam. The EPRC is a non-profit conservation project of Zoo Leipzig, implemented in close collaboration with Cuc Phuong National Park. The center, operating on the interface between ex situ and in situ conservation, resembles a unique conservation effort for some of Vietnam’s and the world’s most endangered primate species. Zoo Leipzig has provided support to the EPRC for many years since its initial establishment in 1993 and has taken over the full management responsibility in 2013. Today, the EPRC is taking care of around 180 rare primates out of 13 species, supported by a team of around 30 employees, including one permanent Head Keeper from Zoo Leipzig.
