My internship gave me a wide variety of skills and experience, giving me a valuable insight to the world of conservation. All the staff have been extremely helpful in giving guidance on how to start a career in this sector and the passion of the organisation is immense. I really cannot speak highly enough of residential volunteering and the organisation as a whole.
