Conservation Planning Assistant at the Canadian Wildlife Service in Vancouver, BC
For my third and final work term, I am working at the Canadian Wildlife Service (CWS) in the stewardship unit as a conservation planning assistant. The skills required to accomplish my responsibilities include learning to efficiently use Excel and analyze publications for note-taking. As well as that, I had the opportunity to experience working from home. For my final project, I used government partners’ research and publications to create a presentation. My presentation included model of strategic actions, threats, and attributes of Garry oak ecosystems, and I was able to use my knowledge and experience to answer questions from the professionals in my unit. My experience working for the CWS was an excellent and treasured opportunity.
