I have a passion for cheetahs and love animals. I was wondering if you have any ideas on a career path and a major I should look into to help decide if I want to pursue a career in wildlife?
Depending on what career path you choose and what school you want to attend, there are many options of major to choose from that would qualify you to work with wildlife. Majors like Zoology, Wildlife Biology, Conservation Biology, and Wildlife Management would all be suitable for a career in wildlife. The one you choose depends on what’s available to you and what you want to do as a career. If you are unsure of what career path you wish to pursue, we would recommend volunteering at different organizations or zoos to get an idea of the type of work you enjoy and that you don’t enjoy. Ultimately there are a variety of paths to the wildlife field; you just have to find the one that is best for you.
