  • 3. Sorting Out and Rambling: Various Thoughts on the Conservation Field Craig MacDonnell Chief of Wildlife Lands
  • 4. Major and Minor Arcana of Conservation Jobs Craig MacDonnell Chief of Wildlife Lands
  • 5. MAJOR ARCANA: All-Purpose Conservation Job Flow Analysis • Do you want to make lots of money? • If YES, pursue other fields. • If NO, continue to next question.
  • 6. Flow, cont’d • Do you want a predictable 9 to 5 job? • If YES, pursue other fields. • If NO, continue.
  • 7. Flow, cont’d • Do you want to go to heaven? • If NO, enter politics or go to law school. • If YES, continue!
  • 8. Flow, cont’d • Do you believe in climate change? • If NO, go directly to hell. • If YES, continue!
  • 9. Flow, finis. • Do you eat kale, wear hemp, carry a water bottle 24/7, wash your used plastic bags, drive a hybrid, or have a man-bun? • YES or NO, it doesn’t matter. • Get in line with everyone else! • In other words, conservation is for all of us.
  • 10. MINOR ARCANA: What is your discipline? • Q: Are you trained in the sciences? • A: If so, pursue organizations where science drives most of the decisions. • Examples – MassWildlife – TNC – Manomet Center for Conservation Science – Union of Concerned Scientists
  • 11. MINOR ARCANA: Discipline, cont’d • Q: Are you trained in economics, law or policy? • A: Think about where those fields predominate. • Some examples – Conservation Law Foundation – The Trust for Public Land – The Trustees of Reservations – Appalachian Mountain Club
  • 12. MINOR ARCANA: Discipline, cont’d • More examples – Open Space Institute – MASSPIRG – Sierra Club – Environmental League of MA – Environment Massachusetts – Clean Water Action – Mass Climate Action Network
  • 13. Passion – Opportunity - Persistence • In the conservation job field, these matter. • Passion is up to you. (Easy in this era.) • Opportunity: This field is still young. • Persistence is rewarded in such fields.
  • 14. Passion – Opportunity - Persistence • With apologies to HAMILTON: – Are you “young, scrappy and hungry?” – Then say it: “I’m not givin’ away my shot!” – “How lucky we are to be alive right now!”
  • 15. Practical Advice on Your “Shot” • Demonstrate credibility and experience – Skills: GPS, GIS, orienteering, map/compass, deed RSH, negotiation and mediation, public speaking, species ID – Volunteer (my story) • Outreach – Avoid the internet and social media – Meet other humans, regularly and shamelessly – Network multiple degrees of separation
