A Career in Ecology
During the 2011 series of CABS talks, ecologist David Watson gave a talk Name that Newt: Five things to kick-start a career in ecology. Recognising that this is a highly competitive field to get into (no pun intended), David emphasised the importance of skills and experiences over and above academic qualifications. These included building up a portfolio of relevant volunteering and being able to drive – ecological sites are, after all, not generally in built-up areas.
