Careers in Zoos and Aquariums

Have you or your students ever wondered what it might be like to work in a zoo or aquarium?

The Association of Zoos & Aquariums has an answer… Zoo and aquarium employment is not always glamorous. Much of the work requires physical strength, as well as the ability to make detailed observations and keep information up-to-date. It takes a special kind of dedication to provide care to animals that require attention 24 hours a day, seven days a week, come snow, rain, or shine. (Sounds a lot like teaching.)

They talk about the types of jobs, fining internships, and provide links to additional resources.
