After that incident, the two became closer, so they cooperated in the next projects.”

anybody who wants to work in the environmental field because they can learn many skills and get a lot of experience.

- Look into a school program such as Environmental Technician that is offered at
the Frost Campus of Fleming College (In order to work accurately, identifying bird skills is the necessary key that any technician needs to have. For this reason, successfully completing the Ecosystem Skills course offered by Fleming College is a good way to gain confidence and be successful because this course can provide foundational knowledge to identify all types of birds in Ontario)
- Be willing to work in any situation (in the early morning and variable weather,
- Have the ability to work independently and as a member of a team and communication skills to complete the work in the proper way
- Never stop learning and working hard
