The UK is famous for being a nation of animal-lovers. Animals and wildlife are all around us and there is a growing emphasis on the need to protect and preserve our environment.

Work in this sector is hard and the competition for jobs can be fierce, but for dedicated individuals the rewards can be very worthwhile. You won't get rich working in this sector, but you can be sure that you will be giving something back to nature, whether you are working indoors or out.
