I was wondering what kind of schooling I would need in order to become a zoo caretaker? Also how much zoo caretakers make?
What are some jobs that work with domestic animals like dogs, cats, etc., but exclude being a veterinarian? What about some jobs with exotic animals?
What are jobs where you work with animals but requires schooling? Like a vet,pathologist. Something to do with science that you need a degree. If you could list them, that would be great. Looking for jobs that require school.(please list how much school) Bonus marks for salaries and job description!!! Please list as many as you can, thanks :)
Ok, so i live in the UK and i'm currently in my first year of AS and it's about that time i need to start thinking about my future. First of all, i am unsure of what degree to do. Currently my ideal job would be something that would involve working with animals however i do tend to change my mind a lot. My first question is should i do i general biology degree or something more specific such as zoology?
I have done some research into working with animals but i haven't got very far. I know that these kinds of jobs don't tend to offer very high pay. So i was wondering what the best sort of career would be if i wanted to work with animals and also what sort of career working with animals would give offer a higher salary than the others. Also, what other careers would be available to me with my biology degree that could also be interesting and offer a lot of pay?
Should I do Biology or zoology?
What hands on careers are there with animals?
What careers with animals get paid a lot?
What other careers are there in biology that are interesting and have high pay?
Thank you to anyone who takes the time to help :)
I've always wanted a job as an animal caretaker/trainer (NOT a vet) such as those seen on shows like "Growing Up" on Animal Planet. However, I've had a hard time finding out any information about this job, such as the official job title, job requirements, average pay, etc. If there is any information people have from experience, or if anyone knows any resources for additional information it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you! =)
I want to know what i have to do to work for the zoo's and things? do i need a certain degree for it?
I'm mostly interested in mammals. What would the job be if you designed habitats, worked directly with the animals, and created a more safe and natural environment for the animals? Would it be a zoologist, caretaker, what? What would you study in college? What would be a good path to take? Expand. Only guidelines: I want to work with animals preferably in a zoo. Give me options and paths and tips and hints.
I want to work with wild animals either in a zoo or in a wildlife sanctuary; I would like to administer their medicine, prepare their diets, and study and observe them. What field would be best for me: veterinary technology or zoology?
You see I really love animals, I volunteer at an animal shelter once a week. I love it so much that I want to have a job with animals in the future. But I don't want to become a vet, but I would like to have a job that involves taking care of animals or at least doing something with animals. Could you give me a hand please?
I am exremely interested in zoology, but I would like to know if there are any other teaching zoos in the US besides Santa Fe in Florida and Moorpark in California. And has anyone here been to one of these? Or know anybody who has been to one of those? What is your opinion on them?
I don't know what kind of job i want and i'm a sophmore in highschool so the pressure is on hehehe but i know i want something to do with animals and i don't feel like working at fast food restaraunts and factories for the rest of my life.
And if u could answer i would also like to know what are the educational reguirements for this job? if you are wondering what this job is, it is where you save gorillas and help them to not become extinct. did you know there are only 600 gorillas left on earth?!
im only i nthe 7th grade. im just trying to plan ahead for the future. so im not looking to find this job now.
In the future I would like to foster tiger cubs until they are old enough to go to zoos or what-have-you. My best guess is zoos or a wildlife preservation. I would hopefully like to get on the list to do this, but I know that I would need training & permits. (And LOTS of space!) Anyone know where I should start?
People always suggest I find another career path since I don't want to be a Vet, which seems like the only career with animals that make "enough money". But I insist that I must have a career with animals, even one that does not make much money.
Wildlife biologist and zoo keeper are my two choices, but both make around 35k, more or less.
How much do animal trainers make, mostly the ones that work with exotic animals?
I want to have a job that involves animals, as I absolutely love all animals! I just can't think of any jobs + I need help, please!
I'm 14. Is that old enough to get volunteer hours for high school at a zoo. I live in LA county in CA. What colleges should I look at? Whatclasses? And I don't really like snakes or spiders all that much. What ate some of the best things I can do. I am a very hard worker and realize that this might not be easy. Will working with a job like this at a reserve be enough to live in CA? If not, what are some other options related with animals ?
I was also wondering about what type of government clearance would I need, and what would the process be?
In the reptile field? I have a big heart from Iguana's and reptiles especially. Am from chicago. I really enjoy animals and think it would be a really good job that I would like alot. So, I was wondering how would someone like me with no experience but, has lot of knowledge about animals of all types. Would get a job working at a zoo?
Please answer if you need an education and, if so what kind and how much.
Thank You in advance!
And would someone inform me on what exactly a zookeeper does? And how much money they make on average....
