Andy’s Answer

There's no one way to become anything. Write/email/call a zoo nearby and ask for informational interviews with keepers. If granted, ask them how they arrived at their positions. Do the same thing with a few other prominent zoos. Based on what they tell you, begin to map out your own paths to your goal.

People are usually glad to discuss how they've come to their current stations. Take advantage of this, but more importantly, take good notes.

Miguel’s Answer

If you have the opportunity to go to college I'd like to recommend studying biology where you can learn about several different life forms. Also, If possible do an internship or volunteer at a local zoo.
