How does one become a wildlife presenter?

I can honestly say that I do not believe there is one correct path to becoming the host or presenter of a wildlife show. Although I dreamed to become a host since I first saw wildlife programs as a young girl, I had no idea it would actually happen. I remember googling “how to become a wildlife host,” when I was in college with little results. My best advice would be to read my answer to,” How do I work with animals?” I did every one of these steps; some I failed at and others I found new strengths.
I would also look into the diversity of career paths or biographies of Joan EmbryLucy CookeJulie Scardina, Danni Washington, Michele Hall, Howard Hall, Chris Morgan, Casey Anderson, Bertie Gregory, Bob Poole, Steve Irwin, Marlin Perkins, Jim Fowler, Peter Gros, Coyote Peterson & Rick Schwartz. Just keep swimming!
