  JOBS WITH WILDLIFE

Who hasn't dreamed of a job working in the woods observing wildlife? Have you considered working in habitat restoration, working at a wildlife preserve or at a refuge? Endangered species as well as invasive species all need attention - and jobs are created for those that love and care for wildlife.

In recent years wildlife concerns have dominated public land policy. That has created employment opportunities for wildlife specialties. However, politics change over time and if you are getting an education make sure you have some diversification in your choice of a major or minor degree.

The private sector also has great opportunities for wildlife management. Ranchers and farmers often lease property for hunting. Nonprofit organizations seek to conserve and enhance wildlife populations. Recreational groups increase opportunities to see and photograph wildlife. Habitat management becomes multipurpose. Think outside the box!
