oh go to your Zoos website, they should have volunteer opportunities And you dont need a good GPA to do that, they always need help.

It depends on what kind of job you are interested in at the zoo. If you are talking about the general well being of the animals and the enclosures then you probably would not need A-levels. If you mean medical care of the animals - i.e. a vet, then yes you definitely need A-levels (or equivalent) and a degree.

Why don't you take your a-levels and see how you get on? You could always have a part time job at a zoo whilst you study and if the a-levels don't work out then you could see about making it full time.

Oooooh, U r so lucky! I luv penguins!!!

What I would do is talk to the zookeepers at your local zoo. They are usually very nice people and are very happy to answer questions about the animals or the job that they do there. There are many different jobs at a zoo, and they will require different levels of education. The zookeeper will be able to help you figure all of that out. You may be able to gain some valuable experience by volunteering your time at the zoo, or perhaps working a part time job there. Experience is a great help in getting a job in the future. Good luck to you, it sounds very exciting!
