Can you volunteer at a zoo near you? That would be a great way to get some experience and make sure you are in the right career for you.

There are lots of jobs working with zoos - you can be a researcher, an administrator, a zoo-keeper, a zoo veterinarian, an animal handler, etc.

Majors that might give you the best chance of working in a zoo are things like wildlife ecology/management, conservation biology, animal science, animal physiology, zoology, environmental science, neurobiology, marine biology, or other science majors. Some colleges offer programs specific to becoming a zoologist and/or zookeeper.

I hope that helps.
