Careers in Conservation

Protect Mother Nature while establishing a career in conservation

People are gifted with the innate ability to care for and protect our natural resources. As sole stewards of the Earth, we have the choice to use our talents and skills so that future generations inherit a flourishing, abundant, and living planet.
WWF-Malaysia strongly encourages people from diverse backgrounds to join us in protecting our environment. At the same time, you can also establish a rewarding career in conservation.  

You don’t need to be a scientist to have an exciting and rewarding career in conservation. At WWF-Malaysia, our staff come from backgrounds as diverse as Accounting, Biology, Business Management, Communications, Environmental Management, Forestry, Fisheries, Human Resources, Information Technology, Law and Photography among others. We are a truly Malaysian NGO with representatives from every state on our staff.

We also have people who joined as trainees and today lead the entire organisation. Our current Chief Executive Officer/ Executive Director, Dr Dionysius Sharma came in as a trainee in 1990 and after 16 years, is the first home-grown talent to lead WWF-Malaysia.
