Zoologists also research the development of animal diseases and are therefore also known as animal scientists or animal biologists.Studying Zoology enables students to equip themselves in the management of nature and of Earth's biodiversity with the aim of protecting species, their habitats, and ecosystems from excessive rates of extinction and the erosion of biotic interactions.
