Hi, i'm currently in the process of trying to wrap my head around all the different ways i can make it to australia. I previously worked as a zookeeper for 6 years and I now work as a Veterinary Care Assistant with the hopes to be a vet nurse. I was wondering how often, if at all, jobs in the animal care area come up? I know in general they're very sought after so was unsure how much of a chance i had of finding sponsorship through a job... I do have family in Australia(sister) but I'm just so confused by all the different via options and conflicting information online! D: 

Any help much appreciated!

Lori Hi, sorry for the delay (Covod has screwed with my day job/web job schedule).

So I see that Zoologist is on the list (and would qualify for a perm visa without the need for a sponsor) with the role coming under the broader heading of "life scientist".

UNIT GROUP 2345 LIFE SCIENTISTS

LIFE SCIENTISTS examine the anatomy, physiology and biochemistry of humans, animals, plants and other living organisms to better understand how living organisms function and interact with each other and the environment in which they live.

Indicative Skill Level:
In Australia and New Zealand:

Most occupations in this unit group have a level of skill commensurate with a bachelor degree or higher qualification. In some instances relevant experience and/or on-the-job training may be required in addition to the formal qualification (ANZSCO Skill Level 1).
Tasks Include:

      • designing and conducting experiments, making observations and measurements, researching information, analysing data, preparing or supervising the preparation of laboratory reports and scientific papers, presenting findings at scientific meetings and conferences, and supervising the work of staff
      • studying the forms and structures of bodily organs and tissues by systematic observation, dissection and microscopic examination
      • investigating the chemical structure and function of living cells and their isolated components, organs and tissues in humans, animals, plants, and micro-organisms
      • examining micro-organisms, such as bacteria, fungi, yeast and their enzymes, and using the knowledge gained to create and develop new, and improve existing, products, materials and processes
      • investigating the effects of environmental factors, such as rainfall, temperature, sunlight, soil, topography and disease, on plant growth
      • planning and undertaking experiments to study, measure and understand marine animals and plants
      • studying the growth and characteristics of micro-organisms, such as bacteria, algae and fungi, and the effects they have on plants, animals and humans to develop medical, veterinary, industrial, environmental and other practical applications
      • investigating the interrelationships between animals in their natural surroundings, in captivity and in laboratories
