Zoologist By Katie Ziegler

I have chosen to research a career as a Zoologist. This career interests me because it allows me to work with animals and try to help them without having to do surgeries or seeing them in pain.
For zoologists the attire can be very different depending on where they are working. A scientists would wear a lab coat, gloves and goggles, a researcher in the field would wear what helps them in the weather either shorts or a warm suit for in the cold.
Zoologists can work indoors or outdoors some as researchers in the field, scientists in a lab, at a school as a professor, or presenting for a group, club or program.
To be a zoologist you need a Bachelor's degree and a Master's degree in biology, chemistry, and english. You need experience by volunteering or having a part time job at a zoo, an aquarium, or any related setting.
With a bachelor's degree in math and science you can earn $42,956. An annual wage can vary from $37,150 to $95,460.You can advance as a zoologist starting as a zookeeper moving up to a zoologist field worker then moving to a professor at a college or Head Curator or Administer . There are 18,530 jobs in the U.S. and there will be zoologist jobs in 20 years because there will always be new things to learn about animals and their environment.

An Entomologist studies the life of insects and how they live.

An Ichthyologist studies the life span and environment of fish.

A Mammalogist studies the actions of a mammal and how they live.

An Ornithologist studies the form of birds and how they move and survive.

There are more related jobs such as a herpetologist that studies reptiles and an embryologist that studies the process of animals.

To become a zoologist or any related job you must be curious, organized, scientific, you should be able to work well with others, and have some computer skills.
Zoologist is an accurate job for me because I am able to study animals and be able to help them in their natural habitat.I would be able to study animals and come up with new ways to save them and their environment.
