Z is for Zoologist

Once again I have picked a theme for the A to Z Challenge. This time I aim to entertain rather than to educate. My theme is careers or occupations. I begin with a piece of creative writing.

Zoë and Zak are zoologists. They do not work at the zoo, although some of the people they studied alongside do. They have learned about animals of every size form zebras and zebu to microscopic organisms known as protozoa. Zoë and Zak specialise in marine life. They like to work out of doors. As well as conducting surveys along the shoreline, they visit schools to speak about conservation, especially about the damage carelessly discarded rubbish can do. Plastic is dangerous to marine life (among other creatures). There are campaigns to clean up coastlines, but it is an enormous task. However, every little helps. #2MinuteBeachClean
