            Drake’s zoo and conservation science concentration provides our graduates the background and practical experience needed to enter the filed of conservation and zoo science, and advance to coveted area director, curatorial, and management positions. In addition, applicants with strong academic backgrounds and operational animal experience are very marketable as candidates for many senior roles in zoos—including education, operations, member relations, and CEO positions.

            Zoos contribute more than $17 billion to the U.S. economy, support 160,000 jobs, and provide training to 12 million students annually.
