Jobs in the future!

Hi, I'm a fifteen year old girl from Ireland and I was wondering how I could work with WWF when I leave school? I've always loved animals and the environment and the saving of them.
Also, how could I help while I still am in school? I don't have a lot of money to donate, but I would still love to help.

  • Hi Ciara
    Congratulations for wanting make conservation your future career. We hope that you find it incredibly rewarding. We do! WWF-UK has an office in Northern Ireland. You may wish to contact them directly to see if they have a youth club or a sugggestion for how you can get involved right now.
    http://ni.wwf.org.uk/ or you can go to the WWF-UK site directly.
    http://www.wwf.org.uk/

    You can also talk to your school to see if they have any environmental courses that you can join. There are some options that WWF International can also offer such as becoming one of our WWF Passport online campaigners or perhaps you might wish to become a member of an online community with like-minded members. For lots of ideas have a look through the following.

    Essentially the more experience you have the better. So anything you can join that shows you are serious about looking after the environment will look good for the future. By volunteering you can also make valuable contacts as well as getting direct experience in the field. Some volunteer work opportunities are posted on Panda.org at:

    However, with regards to volunteering simply contact any WWF office that you are interested in and see what is available or how your skills can be utilised.

    In a few years time you may wish to consider the following.

  • that is the question I allways ask my self, I live in Norway and can see dramatic changes in our climate. I am onely 14 years old but this question I ask my self every day. I love being in nature, out side my house there is forest but some of my absolute fovorite places has been bild houses. so I am afraid that in some years time it will all be gone.

    Hi Ciara! I'm from Ireland too. I'm 16, in 6th year and I've wanted to be a zoologist since I was ten. I'm trying to get work experience for next summer, before I start college. I've e-mailed Fota and Dublin Zoo. You should try too, quickly because places are limited. I've gotten a week in Fota but no word from Dublin Zoo.... I hope this helped. Let me know if you've had any success since?
