Most wildlife jobs involve working hands-on with wildlife. This can be in Game Reserves, Safari Parks, Zoos and for Wildlife Rehabilitation charities. Typically, Ranger or Zoo-keeper roles involve ensuring high standards of welfare for the animals including adequate environmental enrichment, monitoring visitor interactions, correct nutritional requirements, creating high standards of accommodation/environment, ensuring safety from other predators and possibly poachers in some game reserves. Many people working with Wildlife also play a role in conservation and education. There are wildlife charities in the UK and around the world that work tirelessly to conserve and improve conditions for wildlife. Some of these charities also deal with the rescue, rehabilitation and release of wildlife that have been rescued in man-made or natural disasters. They also assist with the rescue and care/rehabilitation/release of wild animals that have been kept in zoos with poor welfare standards or used for entertainment in circuses, aquariums, etc with little consideration to the animal. There are jobs with these animal charities dealing with assisting wildlife in distress and there are several relevant training courses that provide knowledge on this subject as well as an Accredited Diploma.
