I have been working at Lindsay Wildlife Museum as an intern (Less than a year)
Fantastic dedicated and knowledgeable rehabilitation staff. Everyone who works in the hospital is extremely knowledgeable and clearly loved what they do.
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.

Volunteers here seem dedicated to their tasks.
My experience with trying different types of volunteer here is negative.
My latest attempt to make commitment to Hotline volunteer is met with negative feed back from the volunteer coordinator to lack of follow up.
The feeling of cliquish environment is perceived through communicating with the coordinator.
Despite all required training, I am still not sure of mutual commitment as volunteer.
I am quite disappointed with the organization that permit such poor review.
Advice to Management
Perhaps, indoctrinate a better people oriented volunteer coordinator.
Fantastic opportunity, loved the people and work.
Things get repetitive and once you're older there's not as much time for a volunteer position like this.

Friendly environment, chance for growth, and everyone shares different levels of the same passion. They are wonderful at training and the daily tasks are always laid out. There are set ways to do things which makes everything operate smoothly.
Not a con I can think of.

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.
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.
Very detailed safety protocols
Many opportunity to gain new experience and skills
People take great pride in their work
Location is in a fairly low traffic area
Visitors often harass animals and abuse exhibits without being reprimanded
There is no designated area for tour groups to eat lunch inside the museum
