margi shah

Margi Shah who was born in India has been short listed in Tourism Australia’s Best Jobs in the World contest. The winner of this contest gets a 6-month contract with a package worth AUD$100,000 working with Tourism Australia in order to promote the variety of unique regions within the country. From over 45,000 entries submitted across the globe for the role of Park Ranger, Margi Shah is now a part of a select group of 25 individuals who have been shortlisted for the position.                                     

A highly qualified conservationist and biologist

In addition to highlighting her credentials as a qualified Conservationist and Biologist, Margi’s application, a 30 second video (, also showcased her passion for the environment, wildlife conservation, as well as her love for travel and adventure. 

She has an Honours BSc. in Biology from Western University, a certificate in Geographical Information System (GIS) for Environmental Management from the University of Toronto, and has recently finished her MSc in Biodiversity and Conservation at Trinity College, Dublin.

An avid traveler, Margi has been to over 35 countries in 5 different continents. She has spent 6 months in the Galápagos Islands, Ecuador, where she did conservation work through the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA). In addition, she has interned at Big Cat Rescue, a sanctuary that protects a range of wild cats such as Tigers and Bobcats, for a period of 6 months in Tampa, Florida. She has conducted a vast range of fieldwork studying and surveying game species in South Africa, whilst also documenting local fauna and flora in Argentina. More recently, Margi volunteered at The Riverwood Conservancy, based in Mississauga, and was assigned to carry out a pilot study on the health status of the White Pine Tree, also known as the Provincial Tree of Ontario.

Needs support from Indians, Canadians and others

As one of the 25 short listed entrants for the Park Ranger position, Margi now needs to prove that she has the support of Indians/Trinity College (and the world!) to be selected as one of the three finalists. Therefore, she has to create some social media buzz behind her application about why she is the right person for the job. So just do at least one or all of the following before 8 May 2013:

  1. Visit her Facebook page at and like the page to show your support
  2. Upload on the Facebook page a picture of you in a natural area with a sign saying you support Margi for position of Best Park Ranger with your name and country
  3. Spread the word amongst your friends

“I am so excited for this opportunity! This literally would be the best job in the world for me as it encompasses all the things I love in life: travel, nature, adventure and exploration” says Margi.
