Two positions will be filled under this advertisement. One position relates
to the Marine Parks Performance Program
<http://www.environment.sa.gov.au/marineparks/home> (
http://www.environment.sa.gov.au/marineparks/home), and will be of
particular interest to marmam subscribers.

South Australia’s marine areas boast iconic species such as the southern
right whale, bottlenose dolphin, leafy sea dragon, great white shark,
Australian pelican, little penguin, Australian sea lion, New Zealand fur
seal and giant cuttlefish. Southern right whales gather in the Encounter
and Far West Coast Marine Parks, areas that are recognised as being
internationally-significant breeding sites. These areas provide for
undisturbed calving for southern right whales, as well as protection of
Australian sea-lion feeding grounds. New Zealand fur seals and Australian
sea lions are only now starting to recover after the species was nearly
wiped out by commercial sealing in the 19th century. Sea lions and fur
seals make extensive use of our Marine Parks, and are seen on many South
Australian beaches, with breeding colonies on Kangaroo Island and other
off-shore islands.

Data on marine mammal breeding and feeding distributions underpinned the
zoning of many of South Australia’s Marine Parks. As a result, information
on their breeding and feeding biology will be used to evaluate the
effectiveness of our Marine Parks.

The Senior Scientific Officer manages a small team of professionals to
review existing and proposed environmental monitoring, evaluation and
reporting programs and contributes to the development of environmental
reporting for the State. The Senior Scientific Officer undertakes and
manages applied research, and consults with a broad range of staff from
Natural Resource Management Boards, Non-Government Organisations,
Universities and other natural resource management agencies. The Senior
Scientific Officer manages projects, develops integrated ecological, social
and economic monitoring and programs and reports, and trains staff
undertaking advanced statistical analyses to implement the Natural Resource
Management Reporting Framework
and the Marine Parks Performance Program
<http://www.environment.sa.gov.au/marineparks/home> (
