David’s Answer

Take both if you can although many non-wildlife degree programs do offer a zoology course as an elective.  From a career standpoint, Wildlife would be more broad reaching and cover different aspects, generally from an ecology point of view, though if you're going to get a degree specifically in wildlife I would be surprised if a zoology course is not one of the pre-requisites.

Either course will look good, especially if you received a high grade in the class. When you apply for a job that is related to either of these courses an employer will want to hear about what you know, this is where doing well and digging into the information will benefit you.
