Skyler’s Answer

If you are getting just a Bachelor's degree, then things like working at a zoo, aquarium, national park, wildlife refuge, wildlife rehabilitation center, and you may be able to participate in research. I would suggest looking around at places that directly deal with the kinds of organisms you are interested in and seeing if they list any requirements on their job application pages. Good luck hope that helps!

Biologist or ecologist working with an environmental consulting agency or other private businesses, nonprofit organization such as the World Wildlife Fund, or state department such as the Department of Fish and Wildlife or the Department of Natural Resources. Also groups at the federal level like the EPA.
