Applications open for Commonwealth Young Forester Award

As part of the Commonwealth Forestry Association’s commitment to supporting the professional development of young foresters we are pleased to announce the launch of the CFA Young Forester Award 2018 in conjunction with the Faculty of Forestry at the University of British Columbia.

The CFA Young Forester Award provides a short-term work placement of three months hosted by the University of British Columbia at their Malcolm Knapp Research Forest, between September and December 2018, where the successful applicants will be able to develop their practical skills. The Award covers flights, accommodation, local travel, subsistence costs and a small bursary to cover the period of the placement.

The 2018 Award will focus on forest wildlife management. The two winners will assist in a research project focusing on mammal community dynamics in human-impacted ecosystems which will assist in the development of conservation strategies for human-wildlife coexistence.
