Make sure you have a suitable outgoing personality, in that you are happy to be always in communication with people be it by phone, letter, email and site meetings.

As I stated before if you can win people over, they will often do work for you because they want to help you rather than because they have to. I think it is vital to have a level head (to be cool and collected) We can often be faced with challenges or hurdles which may at the outset seem unachieveable. However, if you stand back and break it down anything can be done.

Naturalist?
Naturalist 
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.
