    “What stands out for me on a CV/Resume is experience, this is vital if you want to work for a field based conservation group. It is great if you have a good degree but what really makes you a potential team member is experience in the field, being able to be safe, work as a team in a remote location, identify species and individuals, have a deeper understanding of ecology and behaviour through experience and showing you can deal with living in remote and potentially dangerous locations. Bushwise enables you to learn the skills, that you can achieve academic form but also skills that you cannot learn out of a textbook in a professional and safe environment”
