Hi all, I've spent time at several wildlife clinics in the country, and I've kind of run into the same thing repeatedly--controlling women who have me do their grunt work (pulling weeds, groundswork, scrubbing tupperware/cages, etc) rather than instructing me on the animal care (splinting, low-stress rads, shock care/prevention, etc.). Granted, I UNDERSTAND that cleaning is about 70% of maintaining animal health; however, understanding that a raptor cage should be cleaned twice daily isn't difficult to process/accomplish, neither is ensuring there is a constant supply of clean cat/dog carriers for the mass influx of raccoons during baby season--constructing pens for feeding fawns 'anonymously' and treating fractures is. I worked at two facilities in my time which were hostile environments (the last one I left here in Indiana after being called an 'effing idiot' for accidentally letting a chipmunk escape from its cage while I was cleaning--I had come back after the yelling at people dropping off animals; the phone throwing; the constant verbal abuse of the volunteers). Another lady had me out pulling weeds in front of her house to improve the facility's 'appearance.' I learned very little at either location, despite months of attendance. Does anyone have a healthy experience with a wildlife center, and would anyone recommend a wildlife center for internships? Thanks!
