For many people, zoologists are individuals they see in wildlife documentaries on TV. Here, the intrepid researcher is seen studying lions in East Africa, insects in the Amazon jungle, whales off Hawaii, or penguins in the Antarctic. This is the glamorous side of Zoology and, of course, not everyone is able to enjoy such opportunities. Nevertheless, Zoology can offer a variety of exciting, stimulating and rewarding careers. It is the aim of this web site to give people with an interest in nature and the environment some idea of the scope of Zoology, how one goes about becoming a Zoologist and what employment opportunities currently exist for Zoologists.
