Wildlife rehabilitation

I am going crazy with finding a paid co op placement for school. Not to happy, that our co op professor excuse for just starting to get jobs is that everyone is late posting jobs...and we are done school in a month and a half. So we have only a month and a half to find a co op placement for the summer....all while competing with about 200 of your classmates, and other applicates.

So what I did was I applied to a wildlife rehabilitation center in Ontario. It is only a internship, with a couple hundred month. Housing is included.

I am very excited for this...just wish it payed an hourly fee (my goal was to make enough money topay off some of my visa and pay for my tuitition next year)...but I have to think of the experience it has to offer and it will be a great one:) Plus working so hands on with wildlife, as much as possible is what I want. One of the reasons why I miss working as a APO.

It still is Conservation, just in a different aspect. I am saying this, because I am in a Wildlife conservation program.

I have no idea whether this will be helpful but I am forever seeing jobs with the MNR

And what about the provincial and federal campsites? Quite a few of them run wildlife demo's, have conservation projects etc.

Thanks mumumum, I check this site daily. However, I need housing and the majority of the MNR jobs, do not provide housing.

Besides, I am very eager about this position at the center, the more I think about it, the more I like it better and better. I would be very happy here.

Thanks HRP. I know that one of the requirements is too on your working days, you might be asked too take home one home and bottle feed throughout the night. Being able to be a helping hand and so hands on in raising and then being able to release or know that they have been released (depending on if your internship is going on when ready to release) is an experience that most do not get and you know that it was done right, the healthy way. We will also be assisting in sugery, give meds, etc.
