Q - How can I work with wildlife?

There are many careers that involve helping wild animals – biologist, zoologist, ecologist, naturalist, wildlife advocate, environmental educator, wildlife rehabilitator, animal health technician, wildlife veterinarian, wildlife epidemiologist, conservation officer, wildlife technician, and park warden – for example. Some of these roles may work hands on with wildlife, while others conduct research or educate the public. The best way to know which career suits you is to volunteer with local wildlife organizations or participate in an internship with working professionals. Many post-secondary institutions offer diploma or degree programs for wildlife professionals, while general science and animal care programs can be complemented with wildlife experience.
