    a bachelor's in biology or zoology. it doesn't pay well considering it requires a degree. i have a BS in biol, and thought about zoo work, but it's dangerous, too.

    you might want to consider vet or vet's assistant or even just volunteer with the humane society. there was an autobiography by a zoo vet called "only a gringo would die for an anteater" that gives the scoop on what zoo work is like.
