How to find volunteer work that promotes gaining skills for wildlife conservation and research career?
In the last year, I have volunteered anywhere I can: local forest preserves with prescribed burns, invasive plant control, promotion of native plants, and weed scouting and a wildlife center educating the public about conservation challenges, introducing guests to resident animals, and caring for and handling resident animals. At the wildlife center, I asked to complete a project gaining information on individual turtles in their turtle enclosure including length, weight, and gender. The turtles were also marked to identify them individually. What other volunteer opportunities should I be looking for to gain additional skills?
