"Maybe you can start by taking a course in wildlife conservation
this will most likely give you a better outlook on what exactly you would like to do in wildlife.

What you are describing is a 'wildlife biologist' and you can become this by studying a degree in wildlife science, ecology or environmental science. Good luck!" - 28-07-2011 12:03
