What you'll do

  • Animal breeds
  • What animals need to stay healthy
  • Things that animals do
  • Stages of life
  • Pet safety
  • Much more!

Future study and careers

Your interest in animals could lead to lots of different study paths. If you're interested in animals that swim, you could study fisheries and wildlife conservation biology at the University of Minnesota. If you're interested in farm animals, you could study animal science.
