Pest control, the educational systems, sometimes televised outlets (think AntsCanada YouTube vids, for instance), naturalist/research field studies... Some career areas that come to mind. You can study them all you want. Making a career out of it will take some finagling/work/doing. Ant keeping should be an excellent insight into all aspects, though. Good luck!
