Would you recommend pursuing grad school for someone who wants to work with animals in the wild or in conservatories?

I want to either research animals in the wild, or work with injured or endangered animals in a conservatory.

Griselda A.’s Answer

Honestly you may only require to get your BS in Wildlife Biology/Biology/Wildlife. During your undergrad period, look for research opportunities on wildlife and/or do community service on a wildlife rescue.
That's going to give you experience for the real world.
Once you graduate, if you want to get more education you can go for your graduate program depending o.n what got your attention.
