Project Specialist are essentially "Project Managers" who don't have a full portfolio yet. This position involves developing a portfolio, running projects, and working directly with clients.
Project Ecologists are a jack of all trades when it comes to ecology. They have the ability to take on any project and become an expert in it. Need a plant survival report? Got it. Need an amphibian survey? Got it.
Team Trainers are experienced individuals whose passion is education and training newer folks. This is a great role for someone with lots of ecological restoration experience, but does not want to deal with clients.
