Passionate about all things wild, I'm currently on a new venture to (hopefully) transform me into a successful conservationist. Having an unhealthy obsession with animals I decided to become a veterinary nurse, now, recognising my desire to help nature thrive I started volunteering with the Devon Wildlife Trust. Since then a position became available with the Trust, it was for a 9 month traineeship; 'Wild Paths', funded by the National Lottery; Heritage Lottery Fund - Skills for the Future programme . Thankfully, no previous qualifications or experience with conservation/wildlife was required - as I have very limited knowledge within these sectors. Thanks to the HLF and all the lottery players I'm learning, and experiencing something new everyday. Here's my journey for those of you who are interested.
