About this title:

Synopsis: A detailed survey of the career fields open to those who wish to work with wildlife, including veterinary medicine, zoo and aquarium careers, research, education, conservation, and more.

From School Library Journal: Grade 7 Up-Anyone investigating the myriad options in wildlife careers will find sound advice and inspiration in this guide. Maynard provides insights into veterinary medicine; zoo and aquarium careers; wildlife research, education, and conservation; and jobs in the communication and creative arts. He profiles many people in specific niches including author and painter Roger Tory Peterson, San Diego Zoo "goodwill ambassador" Joan Embery, chimpanzee researcher Jane Goodall, along with an ethnobotanist, spider behaviorist, nature guide, and many others. The generally full-page biographical sketches are integrated into the chapters but readers may be confused at first about where the text ends and the profiles begin. Helpful tips are given on choosing and pursuing such careers. Salaries are rated on a scale from 1-10, comparing years of college needed to earning levels for each occupation. Maynard writes with flourish throughout most of the book and the material is fascinating. Potentially challenging vocabulary is explained in the text and glossary. Both color and black-and-white photos range from fair to excellent in quality, and gender/ethnic/age representation is outstanding. There are numerous contacts and references listed for more information about educational programs, organizations, and publications, including Web sites. A current book specifically on wildlife careers for teens has been sorely needed; this one updates and supplements Edward R. Ricciuti's chatty and also inspirational They Work with Wildlife (Harper & Row, 1983; o.p.).
