Volunteer Spotlight – Connor

Connor is a fresh college graduate from FAU with a degree in Zoology and has been volunteering with us for the last six months. His duties include providing excellent care for our teaching animals. This includes cleaning their enclosures and providing them with food and water. Connor enjoys volunteering at the Nature Center because he is getting the opportunity and experience to work with various species and perform tasks related to his field of interest.

Connor’s favorite teaching animal is Sheeba the king snake because “he is such a gentle and unique animal.” King snakes get this name because they can eat other snakes, including venomous ones! Connor’s hobbies include photography and traveling and he has been to more than 40 different countries.

We help our volunteers find their career path by providing letters of recommendation and resources for various internships and job opportunities. Keep up the great work Connor, we look forward to seeing you succeed in the zoology field!
