First you need to list what type of education you have, you can easily get a job at a zoo working with animals if you have a degree in biology and psychology.

Talk to other people who work at a zoo, that would be my first approach into deciding if you really want to do the job. All in all, if it's your dream job, I believe you would enjoy it. You just need to look into schooling, but most importantly your high school career depends on getting that job.

Don't think you need to be a psychologist to work with animals...that literally makes zero sense!!

Well, let's think about it for a second. You have a lion/tiger in a zoo. All day long they're pacing back and forth in that cage. When we're bored, as humans what do we do? We either sleep or act out. Lions/tigers will act out when they are bored, either resulting in injury to others or other animals around them. An animal psychologist's job is to keep the animals physically active to keep them from acting out.
