Global Forest Generation (GFG) is a US based 501(c)3 NGO which develops multi-country, large-scale, native forest restoration projects internationally. GFG partners with local leaders and communities to protect, restore, and manage vital forest ecosystems for their critical role in preserving water, storing carbon, and protecting biodiversity. Our projects ensure the viability of indigenous cultures and are a refuge for endangered species. GFG’s flagship initiative is Accion Andina, which seeks to restore and protect one million hectares of high Andean, native forests in Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru and Venezuela over the next 25 years. GFG anticipates adding other initiatives in new geographies in the near future.

The Conservation Manager’s primary role is to work closely with his/her conservation manager counterparts in initiatives to ensure quality, enduring conservation is achieved on schedule through good planning, project execution, monitoring and evaluation, and problem solving. The Conservation Manager is also responsible for informing GFG’s Executive Director and senior staff of high level conservation issues and potential solutions. This position additionally helps develop new conservation initiatives at the direction of the Executive Director.
