Job opportunities at the Wilds

As many an Ohio birder knows, the Wilds in Muskingum County is a very interesting place. Ten thousand acres of Bobolink-filled grasslands in the summer; raptors galore in the winter. There's plenty of non-native beasts, too - everything from giraffes to rhinos to African painted dogs to cheetahs. If you or anyone you know might be interested in working at the Wilds, read on, and pass this along...

The Wilds is actively recruiting for approximately 100 seasonal positions and we really would like to see more applications coming in since our training starts in a mere 5 weeks. We are especially anxious to get more Conservation Educator and Lead Conservation Educator applicants. The information is on our website http://www.thewilds.org/about/employment.asp – and it is also pasted below.

Thanks for any help you can provide in getting the word out.
