How to Become a Wildlife Biologist, with US Fish & Wildlife Service

What does a wildlife biologist do? Count birds and bats, mark animals for research, drive boats and All Terrain Vehicles, design studies, identify plants, fight pest plants and climate change; these are just a few of the tasks of a wildlife biologist. Ultimately, Wildlife Biologists perform tasks that support our main goal, to improve our understanding of wildlife and provide quality habitat for wildlife. Join Wildlife Biologists Nancy Pau and Lauren Healey from the US Fish and Wildlife Service as they give an overview of what being a Wildlife Biologist with the US Fish and Wildlife Service entails. Photos, videos, and field equipment used for research and management will be used for demonstration, and a live Q+A follows!
