What is your career all about?
Ethology is about going into nature and observing animals. You watch animals and their behaviors and then you record how the animals act around themselves, others, ect.
What do people do who have this career? (What is it like in the day of a life of a person in this career)?
They will go out and watch how animals act and how they behave. I think it's cool to travel the world and watch animals.
