What careers can you get with a zoology major?

I am currently working towards a zoology degree and plan on working with a breed and release program with endangered animals. If this falls through (or at least if I'm not able to get a job in that kind of program right away), what are some other options? Obviously zookeeping and zoo work (or a sanctuary), anything else that is less common? #zoology #zookeeper
