    Everyday humans are  destroying the habitats of wild  animals and many species are  dying off because of it. Wild  animals are in danger in every  part of the world. That is where  zookeepers and wildlife  rehabilitators step in. They both  do their best to help these  animals strive in the world.  Zookeepers and wildlife  rehabilitators share the same  thoughts on wildlife restoration.  Their jobs have aspects of  taking care of wildlife that are  both similar and different.

    Wildlife rehabilitators and zookeepers are very  similar. They need to have extensive knowledge about  the species in their care including natural  history, nutritional requirements, behavioral  issues, and caging considerations ( www.nrawildlife.org ). Wildlife rehabilitators and zookeepers have to  understand the danger of the wild animals they  are working with.  The animals that are brought through have wild  instincts, meaning that these animals can  potentially be very dangerous.

    Wildlife rehabilitators also have a hard  time finding employment. There are no colleges in the world for  prospective wildlife rehabilitators. The majority of wildlife rehabilitators are  not paid and have full or part-time jobs  elsewhere. The majority of wildlife rehabilitation  centers are run in a home ( www.tc.umn.edu ). Wildlife rehabilitators have to have  specialized training, participate in  mentorship programs, undergo facility  inspections, and must take a written or  oral exam in order to get a specialized  permit from their state wildlife agency  (www.nrawildlife.org).
