Hi all,

I am currently jobhunting in London, UK and as my qualifications are in the biological sector I would like to continue this as a career. I have just seen a job working at the Zoological society of London as a trainee aquarium keeper. The majority of this role is husbandary and captive breeding of endangered species. I pose this question to you - as I would never buy a pet from a petshop or a breeder, is it hypocritical of me to work with a captive breeding programme if it is for conservation purposes?
Your opinions would be really helpful, as I am stumped with this one!

Jo D.
