    Thought I'd introduce myself and see if anyone has any advice for me!

    I'm currently an animal care volunteer at a zoo but have worked in other science areas before this. I have a degree in biology and am in my 30s. Any advice on breaking into the field of zoo keeping? Is it too late/am I too old? Please, any advice would be appreciated! :D

    It's never late to do what you want, and of corse if you can/got the opportunity.
    I am 26 years old graduated veterinarian, almost 27 in summer (july 29) (winter in non-equatorial Southern hemisphere) :p

    Welcome to ZooChat and good luck with your ambitions - I don't know about the USA, but you would be in with a chance in the UK, so hopefully it's the same as over here.
