Humans and animals live their lives alongside each other. We are inseparable from each other and many jobs exist to care for our animal friends. Vets care for their health while groomers are animal beauticians. In the countryside, the National Parks & Wildlife Service cares for the environment of wild animals, especially endangered ones, while Gamekeepers maintain the numbers of animals used for hunting.
Being a vet is a job for someone who has a passion and a love for animals. But it is not for the faint of heart, as you will often be dealing with animals in great distress or pain.
Animal Care encompasses a wide range of jobs including animal welfare, care of domestic pets and zoology. A passion for animals is a definite requirement.
Most non-government organisations are volunteer based, but there are paid careers available in wildlife conservation as part of government agencies.
Training as a vet takes a number of years with high academic standards, but great career opportunities once qualified.
