Zoos, zoological parks and other captive environments have become important parts of wildlife conservation. If you have a desire to work with wildlife in a captive setting, the zoological conservation track is the right path for you. You’ll receive the coursework you need to manage wildlife, study them in their captive environment, assist zoo veterinarians in caring for captive wildlife and interact with the public. Let your passion for animals lead you to the zoological conservation major at Murray State University!
