There is no special talent required to do what I do and there are many capable of doing it. The first requirement is an ability to communicate with people, including listening skills. The second requirement is common sense. Unfortunately that can't be learned or purchased - you either have it or you don't. The third requirement is an interest in people.

Not surprisingly, some aspect of the natural sciences will run through the Naturalists interests - from ecological awareness to nutrition and health. People with an interest in horticulture, land usage and farming (including fish) are Naturalists.

Some Naturalists focus on animals rather than plants, and may enjoy working with, training, caring for, or simply herding them. Other Naturalists will prefer working with the end result of nature's produce - the food produced from plants and animals. Naturalists like solving problems with solutions that show some sensitivity to the environmental impact of what they do. They like to see practical results, and prefer action to talking and discussing.
