    I have been working at Lindsay Wildlife Museum as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Fantastic dedicated and knowledgeable rehabilitation staff. Everyone who works in the hospital is extremely knowledgeable and clearly loved what they do.

    Cons

    Some staff members lack people skills and speak down to volunteers and interns. We do this work because we enjoy it, it is important to keep volunteers happy.

    Advice to Management

    Attempt to train rehabilitation staff on how to speak appropriately to volunteers and interns.

    Pros

    Fantastic opportunity, loved the people and work.

    Cons

    Things get repetitive and once you're older there's not as much time for a volunteer position like this.

    Pros

    Wonderful mission, preserve California wildlife, friendly work atmosphere, give back to the community, educate people from around the world, interact with wildlife on a daily basis.

    Cons

    Small staff, positions do not open up often, will likely have to be an unpaid intern to get into certain positions, amount of visitors varies greatly day to day, older volunteers sometimes look down on young employees.
