Careers With Animals

    Many of us love animals from aardvarks to zebras and everything in between.  Most people obtain a dog, a cat or a goldfish and that is enough, but there are some that have more of a desire to make a difference with animals.  For those people who want a career with animals there are a multitude of options available.

    Here is a small sampling of some of the careers available with domestic and wild animals:

Marine biologist

    We receive a number of emails and calls from aspiring zookeepers each week asking for help and guidance in finding a job. It seems the zookeeper career is one of the most popular of all the animal related careers available and one that is very difficult to break into.  For those of you with the drive and determination to become a zoo keeper we have a short article on Becoming a Caregiver.
