What do I need to study zoology?Watch
Ugh! I’m choosing my options this month, and I have an idea of the career route I want to take. I want to work with animals. I’m a very academic girl, and have targets of at least a C, predicted around an A/A* in most subjects, so I’m aiming more at higher paid jobs and high qualifications. I get quesy around blood, so a vet is out of the question, however I can deal with watching hunting happen and that sort of stuff. I want to be a zoologist, but my teacher said it wasn’t very academic. Do you guys have any ideas what animal career I can go into? What options should I take for it ? What is the pay?
There's no single pay scale. Generally, anything that people do because it's a passion, like working with animals, acting, working in museums etc are quite poorly paid, because money isn't the motivation and someone will always do it for less money, because they love it so much. So it's not massively well paid especially early on in a career, but a professor of Zoology is paid the same as a Professor of English or History or Physics etc.
