Welcome to the career site of the Zoologische Gesellschaft Frankfurt/Frankfurt Zoological Society at Impactpool!
The Frankfurt Zoological Society (FZS) is an international conservation NGO based in Germany. FZS is active in biodiversity-rich areas in central and eastern Europe, in east Africa, in central South America and in south-east Asia. In terms of habitats the main focus is on the great savanna, forest, wetland and mountain areas. The main emphasis in Europe is on wilderness development in Germany and the conservation of pristine habitats in the Balkan states, Ukraine, Belarus and Kazakhstan. Our project countries in east Africa are: Tanzania, DR Congo, Zambia, Zimbabwe and Ethiopia. The focus in South America is on our major programme in Peru and our new project in Guyana. The project areas in south-east Asia are Sumatra and Vietnam.
Zoologische Gesellschaft Frankfurt von 1858 e.V. is a registered non-profit-making society. Our work is financed by the contributions from our members, private donations and bequests and endowments from our supporting foundation, Hilfe für die bedrohte Tierwelt. Support for our projects also comes in the form of external funding, for instance from foundations or public funding programmes.
FZS has roughly 300 employees, with 20 working at the head office in Frankfurt, and all the others in the different project countries. In addition, there are around 40 volunteers working as conservation ambassadors at Frankfurt Zoo, and 30 or 40 volunteers are also currently carrying out environmental education work as part of the Peru Programme.
