Dr. Margaret Wild, Wildlife Veterinarian

Wild animals all over the United States have a friend and caregiver in Dr. Margaret Wild, who leads the wildlife health program for the National Parks Service. As a wildlife veterinarian, Margaret researches 500-pound elk in Colorado's Rocky Mountain National Park. She also works to conserve places and species for future generations, so we can all appreciate what nature has to offer. If you're interested in becoming a veterinarian, Margaret suggests that you take math and science classes, do well in school, and volunteer at a local animal clinic or park. She adds, "Be passionate about what you do, always work your hardest, and get out and enjoy nature!"
