Benefits to Students
What is OZT?
The One Zoo Tree Platform is the most comprehensive career preparation tool available, focusing currently on careers in working with animals.
The Platform aims to assist children and older students in choosing a career, as well as in planning and preparing for it.
What are the Benefits for STUDENTS?
Students may use the Platform either as VISITORS, or join the Community within the Platform as MEMBERS.
Visitors (children still in school, as well as students currently, or planning to study further through online courses, colleges or universities), can use the basic career information for FREE, without registering as a member of the community.
Those who want to learn more and make friends with other students around the world, interact with Tertiary Institutions, as well as animal organizations, need to register to use the full Platform.

Don’t want to add or share your own photo as an avatar?
Here is a link to an online app where you can easily create your own cartoon Avatar. When you are done, save it to your PC, and then upload it on OZT to your new Profile.
Students may join Groups corresponding to the following:
- Careers they are interested in
- Animals they want to work with
- Tertiary Institutions with good courses
- Animal Organizations with important volunteering opportunities,
This means that you may belong to several Groups as you progress on your career preparation path.
Each Group has a Forum for one-to-one interaction, a content area with free documents to download, and a link to all the different Short Courses.
Short Courses help you gain much needed knowledge needed to bridge the gap between High School and further studies, or starting your animal related career/business. They also teach you which career skills are required, as well as facts about the animals you can work with.
There are a lot of special short courses where you may learn things such as surviving in the wilderness, basic controls of flying a helicopter.
RULES AND USER POLICY:
The One Zoo Tree Platform makes use of community software to allow members to create their own Profiles, join Groups and communicate with each other directly via an onboard messaging system.
As international law places restrictions on the age of users without adult consent, the Platform has made the MEMBERSHIP part available for students aged 14 and up.
Students 13 and younger still have access to the open source info, and MAY register, only with adult permission and supervision. All students will be required to read and agree to a strict USER POLICY.
We have a very strict USER POLICY and set of operating RULES. These documents, together with operational GUIDES can be found in the MAIN MENU, attached to the top of each page, as well as within the FOOTER towards the bottom of all pages.
If you want to join OZT as a member, you are forced by law to read through the USER POLICY, and agree to it’s terms when registering. Any violation of the USER POLICY and RULES will lead to immediate account termination. This will never be negotiable, as we value the safety of our users more than the Platform itself!
A quick scan through the User Guide within the Member Portal will help you to know how to use the different elements in the Platform.
