I have a passion for exotic animals and for animal rescue. What Career options would be good for me?

I really want to work with animals but I struggle with and very much dislike biology and the science courses. I have high functioning autism and want to find a job that fits with who I am. I'm interested in working at a zoo or an animal rescue place, but I don't know what education I need to pursue.

Do I need a degree or is there a different way?

Do I need a degree to achieve my goal of becoming a zookeeper? If I don’t what other path options are there? And If I don’t get a degree does that not make me as competitive in the future when looking for a job?

What major(s) should I have to be a zookeeper or work with animals (not a vet)?

Hello everyone. I would love to work with animals for my career. But I don't understand if I should go for Animal Science or Zoology. Or both? I don't want to be a vet necessarily. I would love to be a zookeeper overall, but I am not sure what major I should do. I appreciate any help you can provide.

How hard is to have job and go to college?

Hi, I am starting to look at colleges since I am graduating high school next year. I am looking at becoming a zookeeper. Also, I am enrolled in college credit plus but have not decided what to take and I also plain on finishing all my normal college credits before studding for my degree. I have already looked at a couple schools but they are out of state, which means I will need a job. I was wondering how hard it would be to manage my schoolwork and a job at the same time? #zookeeper #career #time-management #college #college-advice

I want to pursue a career with animals. Help?

For all my life I wanted to work with animals. However I don't know exactly what to do in it. Sometimes I wanted to be a host on an animal show just like Steve Irwin or Coyote Peterson. Sometimes I want to be just a simple wildlife conservationist. Sometimes I just want to work at an animal shelter/sanctuary or zoo. Also I need scholarships for it. I applied for many scholarships but I haven't won any of them. Any tips for my career choice and scholarships. #wildlife #animals #zoology #scholarships #career #zookeeper #conservation #college-major #job #university #low-income #grant #dogs #animal #career-choice #confused

What is the best method for getting a job in a zoo or wildlife rehabilitation center?

I have always been interested in wildlife and plan on being open to either option once I receive a degree in Wildlife Ecology and Conservation Sciences at Washington State University. So far this is just a plan but I will be applying for their spring semester which begins this January. I guess I just want to know if this is a good idea or if there is another method such as volunteering or internships that I should also keep in mind. #zookeeper #wildlife-rehabilitation #zoology #wildlife-biology #wildlife-conservation

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
