Endangered/Vulnerable Species : Zoologist

Zoologist

As a zoologist, you focus on the study of animals. Zoologists study the behaviour, origins, genetics, diseases and life progression of animals and wildlife. With that in mind, research and prepare a document that includes the following items, specific to your endangered species. The information you collect will be used in the team presentation you will present to Congress.
