Zoo Animal & Wildlife Veterinarians

A small number of veterinarians work in zoos or assist researchers with field projects, educate and train international colleagues and collect medical data on captive and free-living animal populations.

Wildlife veterinarians investigate and research diseases, rehabilitate wild animals and represent wildlife and conservation on a global scale. They participate in research to develop tools and methods to ensure that all species of wildlife are treated humanely during all wildlife management activities.
