Interested in a career working with animals?

Posted: Updated:

Finding a career in the animal sciences can be difficult. But, if you had the opportunity to talk to those that are in the field already, wouldn't it be that much easier?

The Texas State Aquarium is holding their first of four Animal Science Exploration Programs this evening, a perfect way to get in-depth into the departments of what it takes to care for the animals in an environment like the aquarium.

Volunteer Program Manager, Annie Vlach, says "this is a brand new program, we're really excited about it. We're gonna do it four times this year, and this first one is an overview of all of our animal care departments."

You'll get a chance to see how the dolphins are trained along with their feeding hours, how the wildlife rehabilitation staff recently helped the cold-stunned turtles, as well as follow the bird and mammal staff as they help show what it takes to care for the animals that live in the aquarium.

This program is for 12-25 year old's and will take place from 5-7 p.m. Monday, February 12.

You can purchase tickets on TexasStateAquarium.org
