Volunteer Spotlight: Robert Ullom

Robert Ullom, Volunteer

Robert Ullom has been an animal care volunteer at Okeeheelee Nature Center (ONC) for the past four years. He assists with the nature center’s normal operating procedures by taking care of both the indoor and outdoor education animals. This includes all types of animal husbandry, such as feeding and enclosure maintenance. However, Robert goes above and beyond by providing animal enrichment for all of the education animals. This helps the animal’s wellbeing by stimulating their senses, improving their overall nutrition and enhancing their physical health.

Currently, Robert is a mentor for our teen volunteers by helping them with their annual research projects that are required for the Okee-Teen program.
