Great experience for animal husbandry/handling, as well as an intro to conservation education
The job itself could be amazing; you are in an important position to teach people the importance of our natural resources, by working with animals and in the outdoors on occasion. I was fortunate to be able to work here. However, the management is awful. For both the animals and part-time employees, one could never count on most of the supervising staff for any but the most basic tasks. They claimed to be flexible with college class scheduling and events but were not, even far in advance. With this, the opportunities to impact the public in the realm of conservation education still existed and made the job worth it for the months I was there.
