Career Prospects

Employment opportunities aren’t many for aspiring zoo keepers, and soon as the vacancy is announced, competition can be stiff. Hence, you need studies and training that will let you gain an advantage over other applicants.

A zoo keeper’s duties typically include care and maintenance of animals such as food preparation and keeping enclosures clean and safe. Oftentimes, they are required to make detailed observations as well as assist in capturing and restraining animals. Keeping records is usually part of the job too.
Aside from becoming a zoo keeper, the course can also pave the way for jobs like VET assistant and wild life officer. You can also work for animal hospitals and daycare centers, impound centers and protection agencies. Specialized animal management areas and exotic animals are often handled by specialist zoo keepers.
