Coral Folks and Parks Folks, 

Below is the Job Description/Scope of Work for a Resident Advisor on a USAID 
Project in Egypt, relating to the natural resources management of the Red 
Sea. I spent 18 months on the precursor to this project, so would be happy to 
provide insight and details for anyone who is interested.  The outgoing 
person had a terrestrial-parks background, but a marine orientation is really 

The position is open immediately--only serious folks able to make a year or 
more committment should respond.

PLEASE DO NOT HIT REPLY---rather send me an individual email regarding the 
position, or contact Ms. Stagliano (info at end)  at IRG directly.
