Pollinator Partnership Canada is hiring two Field Biologist and Outreach Assistants to support our Habitat Stewardship Program work, outreach and education, and conservation efforts in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories, Canada. Key tasks include:

  • monitoring and recording plant-pollinator interactions, specifically with bumble bees, around the city of Yellowknife over the summer months as part of our HSP project Plan Bee: Identifying and assessing priority habitat resources for bumble bees and other pollinators using collaborative community-based conservation.
  • working with and mentoring our Pollinator Leadership Youth Team during pollinator ID training workshops and summer field season.
  • creating pollinator outreach materials and resources in collaboration with Indigenous communities to raise awareness about the relationships between bees, pollinators, and the land.
  • working with native plant societies, gardening groups, and other non-profit organizations to learn more about the accessibility of native seeds and plants in the north for future pollinator conservation efforts.

Pollinator Partnership Canada (P2C) is a registered charity dedicated to the protection and promotion of pollinators and their ecosystems through conservation, education, and research.

Without the actions of pollinators, agricultural economies, our food supply, and surrounding landscapes would collapse.

Birds, bats, bees, butterflies, beetles, and other small mammals that pollinate plants are responsible for bringing us one out of every three bites of food. They also sustain our ecosystems and produce our natural resources by helping plants reproduce.

Pollinating animals travel from plant to plant carrying pollen on their bodies in a vital interaction that allows the transfer of genetic material critical to the reproductive system of most flowering plants – the very plants that:

  • bring us countless fruits, vegetables, and nuts,
  • ½ of the world’s oils, fibers and raw materials,
  • prevent soil erosion,
  • and increase carbon sequestration.
