National Trust seeks new director to fight heritage threats

Trust logo 200A search is on for a new campaigner to lead the fight to protect St Helena’s threatened heritage.

St Helena National Trust is looking for a new director who can defend the island’s historic buildings as well as enhancing its natural assets – including critically endangered species.

The job advertisement says: “The remote island of St Helena is a treasure trove of world heritage, including hundreds of historic monuments and over 400 plants and animals which occur nowhere else on the planet.

“Yet today this extraordinary heritage is threatened by lack of information, neglect and lack of funding.”

A new director is needed after Adam Wolfe stepped down from the role at short notice.

The job involves leading up to 20 staff and volunteers on several fronts, as well as fund-raising, setting strategy, advising the island government, and working alongside the island’s environmental directorate.

The Trust has secured Darwin Project funding to help regenerate native species on the island, including at the Millennium Forest.
