Sydney Zoology Service Group
Dear Mr Thomas,
Re: Zoologist position
I am writing to be considered for the zoologist position as advertised on your website.
I am a qualified zoologist and experienced zoological consultant with an extensive knowledge of conservation biology and environmental management, monitoring and evaluation gained over six years of practical experience. I currently work as a zoological consultant for Alpha Environments, focusing on fauna survey monitoring and management in a natural resource management context. I have a solid working knowledge of all Australian fauna, with specific expertise in marsupials, rodents and bats. My field experience includes working in remote and logistically difficult environments and I possess in-depth knowledge of health and safety regulations and environmental legislation.
I have a comprehensive understanding of and experience in project planning, management, compliance and evaluation. I have been involved in the integrated management of captive and wild populations, and have trained and mentored various government, NGO and private sector stakeholder communities for environmental and development-driven projects involving assessment, consensus building, field operation and logistics.
My experience as a consultant has provided me with highly developed analytical and research skills including data compilation and analysis, technical report writing, the preparation of presentations and proposals, and the coordination and implementation of environmental surveys and conservation programs.
Thank you for your consideration of my application. I would welcome the opportunity to discuss the position with you further and look forward to hearing from you.
