Feb. 16 (UPI) -- A new resort in the Bahamas is seeking someone with a high-flying set of skills to act as its new CFO -- that is, Chief Flamingo Officer.

The Baha Mar mega-resort posted a job opening on its website seeking a "Chief Flamingo Officer" to be in charge of caring for the flock of birds that are scheduled to arrive at the resort this spring.

The resort said the flamingo officer needs to have more than just a passion for pink birds, they should have a degree in zoology, a related field or exotic bird experience equivalent to a degree.

"Practical application and knowledge of avian science, flamingo care and propagation, bird husbandry skills, staff training, and animal training & enrichment skills required," the posting states.

The resort said the person should also be required to "stay current on avian care trends."

The Chief Flamingo Officer would also be required to "create emotional connections" with resort guests while giving tours and demonstrations.

"Baha Mar's Chief Flamingo Officer/Avian Manager, in conjunction with the Avian Curator, will be responsible for the care, propagation and training of the flamingo collections at Baha Mar and related facilities to create a Beach Sanctuary experience that will leave a lasting impression on guests," the posting states.

The resort said it will accept applications for the position through Feb. 28.
