Vacancy organization

Some major changes are currently executed within the board but also regarding improvements of tools and activities.

With an eye on the future public/relations become more and more important. In the era of Facebook and other social media on the internet a “simple” newsletter is no longer enough in order to draw attention to the important aims the ESF stands for.

We therefore are looking for persons familiar with and having skills on the internet and its public relation related tools.

Experience on the field of PR and publicity as well as experience in speaking and writing the English language is necessary.

In case you sympathize with the ESF aims on the field of studbook keeping in relation to species conservation and recovery and have these skills please step forward and report yourself to president Laurens Woldring ( This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

 ------------------------------------------

During the past few years some studbook keepers stopped with their ESF studbooks. Despite some requests for successors we have not been successful in finding those.

The studbook keepers positions currently vacant are for important species. The 3 Cuora species, are A priority species and concern critically endangered species.

Within the Cuora studbooks reproduction has been taking place meaning that proper genetic management desperately needs to be continued in order to guarantee the future of these species. These studbooks are vital for the establishment of captive assurance colonies. The captive ESF studbook population of these species is not very large. For enthusiastic turtle keepers/breeders management of these studbooks certainly a challenge to accept these positions.

In case you are interested in the management of one of these species please report yourself to president Laurens Woldring ( This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it ) or secretary Harry Rotmans ( This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it  ).
