If you have a love for wildlife and would like to work to increase the public's
appreciation of animals, then you could well operate as an Animal Broker. With
the alarming increase in wildlife smuggling and animal-carried diseases, it's
imperative that you get all the necessary clearance from your local government
about the import of animals into the country. You'll also need to insist on
the same from your supplier, making sure that the animals have been certified
free from disease and have not been obtained illegally.
The internet will be a valuable resource for you as you build a database of
animal suppliers. You'll need to check out these suppliers and ensure that they
are registered businesses with their local governments before you get in touch
with them. Depending on the company that has engaged you to locate the animals,
you may be required to handle the actual transportation of the animals. If you
are operating purely as a broker, then your job ends as soon as you connect
the buyer and the seller, and they have agreed to make a deal.
