I need a better job! What's an introvert with a B.S. to do??

Here's my situation: I graduated with a bachelor's in biology, and have had a series of jobs I liked, involving wildlife rehabilitation and working at a zoo... but I've moved and these jobs are hard to come by in my current location, AND, none of these jobs make any money. So what career field can I transition into that could help me take advantage of the fact that I already have a bachelor's degree?

I am not opposed to taking classes or doing a 2 year program in order to be qualified for a good job. However, I am an extreme introvert, so things like customer service, nursing, dental hygenist are not a good option for me. I don't think I could do grad school without years of studying for the math portion of the GRE either.... I have done the veterinary hopital scene and I am not interested in being a DVM or CVT.
While working with animals has been my only real passion, I'm starting to think that I just need a job that makes decent money so that I can help support a family, which, in the grand scheme of things, is what I really want most.
Does anyone have ideas for a job that:
* Pays well
* Doesn't work with the public directly
* PAYS WELL
I would welcome ideas on 2 year programs, certificate programs, etc.
