Also, check your local zoo. I know ours has volunteer program. Perhaps there is a similar program in a zoo near you? It may parlay itself into a job.....I know of a person who is very knowledgable about snakes and reptiles. He volunteers at the Zoo on weekends and takes care of the reptile house.
yea...I actually think I'm going to go into architecture in college...I have a really good idea about having a filter system build into a house and haveing major tanks in them...just an idea that I would really love to bring into this world
My wife has a friend from work who's husband is a big saltwater hobbyist. His filtration system is amazing and he's got one room dedicated just to that. It's a trickle system with protein skimmers, replenishment tanks, the whole bit. It's pretty impressive.
