to the rescue and rehabilitation of regional wildlife, with an emphasis on 
Harbour Seals and avian species. We are seeking a candidate for the position of 
Senior Marine Mammal Rehabilitator.

IWNCC is located in the Pacific Northwest, on Salt Spring Island, one of the 
largest of the Canadian Gulf Islands. We are a small, but very busy Centre, 
primarily outdoors on a forested 4-acre property.   We treat up to 100 Harbour 
Seal pups and 500 avian and terrestrial animals each year.   The majority of 
our animal intake occurs between May and November.   Seasonal work hours are 
long and the work is fast-paced and physically demanding, however with our 
cross-discipline of animals, it is varied and fulfilling.

The position reports to the Executive Director and is responsible for 
overseeing all aspects of care for our marine mammal patients.   This includes 
coordinating rescues; admissions, diagnosis and critical care; hands-on daily animal 
husbandry; leadership, training and supervision of Fellows and Interns; 
maintaining clean animal habitats; conducting the day-to-day running of the clinic; 
procuring and managing inventory of supplies, equipment and medications; 
keeping accurate detailed records and liaising with industry professionals.   The 
position will also assist with avian and terrestrial animal care.

The successful candidate will have hands-on marine mammal rehabilitation 
experience at a senior level.   She/he must be experienced in examinations, 
diagnosis and treatment plus have proven supervisory and English language 
communications skills, be physically fit and able to work as a part of a busy team.

This position starts May 2007.   Salary and benefits are negotiable and 
commensurate with experience.   Preference will be given to Canadian candidates, 
however non-Canadian applicants will also be considered.   IWNCC will facilitate 
required work permits should the successful applicant be non-Canadian.

Please send your CV, references and an informal cover letter to J. Ballerone, 
Administrative Director, Island Wildlife Natural Care Centre, 322 Langs Road,
