I looked into this at one time and you can actually get a degree in Zoology at certain colleges. i think that is where zoo's recruit from.

I would major in biology, possibly pre-vet. Some schools have animal behavior programs. I'd look into that.

I know that zookeepers don't usually tend to make a lot of money. It's a very rewarding position, and one that I would certainly get out of bed happily each day for, but from what I know, it doesn't pay all that well.

I guess it would depend on the particular zoo, the popularity of the zoo, and whether you were a basic animal keeper, or one of the managing keepers.
