There are big cat, primate, reptile, wild bird and marine rescues that always need volunteers, as well as employ Veterinarians, nutritionists, landscapers, keepers (some/most allow the public to visit, and require tour guides), etc.

info re: Animal Rehabilitation centers/reserves & sanctuaries
employment and volunteer opportunities.
(many offer free room & board for their volunteers)
Shambala is a big-cat rescue/preserve, in Calif. They allow interested and concerned people to visit. I'm sure the personnel would be helpful if you contacted them re: volunteering and/or possible employment opportunities.

There are many rescues and conservation-oriented organizations that one could work with (and for) exotic animals and marine life. Your search should begin with your own local, as there are countless Wildlife Rehabilitation Reserves & Sanctuaries, located all around the globe..that help injured or orphaned animals, birds and reptiles.

There are many to choose from. I have enjoyed a long career of working with fox, cheetah, kinkajou, reptiles, marine fish, raptors, parrots, coyote, and others.
