BBC Wildlife Magazine - - Advertisement Feature -

SO YOU WANT TO WORK with wildlife? Per­haps you’ve al­ready be­gun a re­lated de­gree – zo­ol­ogy, botany or en­vi­ron­men­tal science – or a more vo­ca­tional un­der­grad­u­ate course such as wildlife con­ser­va­tion, zoo man­age­ment, science com­mu­ni­ca­tion or wildlife film­mak­ing. Even so, com­pe­ti­tion for ca­reers in wildlife is fierce, whether you plan to study an­i­mal be­hav­iour, con­trib­ute to con­ser­va­tion or share your pas­sion for na­ture on screen or in print.

The good news is that, even in your first un­der­grad­u­ate year, there’s plenty you can do to boost your prospects. Over the fol­low­ing pages you’ll find ideas for short cour­ses you can take along­side your stud­ies, pro­vid­ing valu­able skills and ex­pe­ri­ence. We also dis­cuss how vol­un­teer­ing and work place­ments can en­hance your CV with train­ing and a demon­stra­tion of com­mit­ment.

We hope this con­cise guide will help you with your first steps in a ca­reer work­ing with wildlife.
