I'm currently applying to Tufts, UC Davis, Minnesota, Oregon, Western, and Wisconsin. I was hoping that anyone (alumni or current students) could let me know their personal thoughts on the wildlife/zoological/exotics programs? I've heard that Wisconsin and UC Davis have great wildlife programs, but I'm struggling to find information on their websites. Currently Tufts is my #1 for wildlife and conservation medicine.
Also I was hoping anyone who went to these schools could also share what they like most about the program/school, and what they liked least? Thanks!!
Here's a list of all the major taxonomical groups in the animal kingdom!
Ark 743 was successfully stored for the requisite 17,000 pulses—roughly equivalent to around 9,900 sun cycles at its origin/destination planet. This planet was titled Eretz by the associated Caretaker, and since that title had not yet been taken in the database, it was established as the official designation.
I personally broke the stasis seal of Ark 743 without incident. All specimens were scanned and vitals were overwhelmingly positive, including the Caretaker. Ark 743 is now making the half pulse trip back to Eretz. The retrocryo sequence is scheduled as normal. However, as I will document below, information which has come to light after its departure causes me to write this report to suggest the unpopular notion of intervention.
As I reported previously, the prelude drone for the origin/destination of Ark 743 did not return at its scheduled date. This did not cause concern, for the Prelude drones have been intermittently failing over the last hundred pulses or so. Without w... keep reading on reddit ➡

I'm a High School Senior in Miami, Florida, and soon to be Freshmen at Florida International University, in the Fall of 2020 to study Marine Biology. In the future, I intend to specialize in the study and conservation of threatened and endangered wildlife.
I applied for my local zoo's Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) Program, for this summer, but it was canceled due to the global spread of COVID-19.
I'm looking for ways to educate myself and get involved in wildlife conservation since I'm unable to volunteer/work at my local zoo by any means. I'm not sure what to do.
I'm considering becoming an Associate Member of the Zoological Registrar Association to participate in their Training Certificate Program, but I would like to know if anyone has any experience with the ZRA and/or their certificate program.
I would also really like to know if anyone has any recommendations for either a program I can work/volunteer/intern for or online certification that I can learn from.

All my life I loved nature and now for my thesis, I got a chance to write and do a project for the relocation of the small zoo in my city to a huge empty space of land which is already rich with the flora and fauna but it is also a poor area where a lot of species are endangered so I would prefer to keep it as an organized natural reserve. It is a fictional project which means that I am unlimited by any funds or stuff like that.
I am looking for the literature regarding the organization of the zoos and animal sanctuaries, natural reserves and how they work and what is the degree of human influence and how it is done from the aspect of the urbanism and architecture, how to create an environment that is suitable for the animals, zoo workers and people alike.
Now you are probably thinking why am I mixing the words zoo and natural reserve just like that. I am well aware that these are two very different things. It is just that I am at the beginning of my thesis so I am far from a concre... keep reading on reddit ➡
In general, how often do zoologists study super-well-known model species?
As a note, I have the DM Guide, Player Handbook, Monster Monual, Volo’s guide to monsters, Xanathar’s guide to everything, and Mordenkainen’s tome of foes as resources to pull from.
