      Pros

      Very fun and relaxed group Job is pretty simple once you get the hang of it consistent hours 7am-12noon M-F You get to see-upclose/experience many of the animals in ways most people would never get a chance to.

      Cons

      Safety isn't always taken seriously enough Not enough pay to live on for most people No paid time off or paid sick time (covid time is an exception sometimes) There will always be some drama..... sometimes it gets annoying.

      Pros

      Absolutely the dream job!! I have never seen a group of people more dedicated to the health and safety of animals and the preservation of their natural habitats. It was an honor to spend some time learning the processes and having the opportunity to give back to nature.

      Cons

      As with any company, there can be a divide between employees. My time with the animals was miraculous!! With some of the people... Not so much.
