What does Wildlife Care and Conservation involve?
Wildlife care and conservation involves the study of animals and other wildlife and how they interact with their ecosystems. Workers in zoos help threatened and endangered species by breeding them in captivity and sometimes re-introducing them into the natural environment. Others in this career area may work outdoors, gathering data and studying animals in their natural habitat. Park workers (including Park Rangers) and workers in nature centers are also considered part of this career domain. This is a great career option if you like working with animals, and you like some freedom in your work environment (e.g., working oudoors). It is likely that you will need to take some courses in Biology to be competitive for these jobs.
glassdoor.com.com lists the average yearly income for a Wildlife Care and Conservation worker (e.g., Park Ranger) at $36,000.
