Observing animals in their natural habitats

in addition to working in labs and in diverse

Environments.

SKILLS REQUIRED FOR WILDLIFE BIOLOGY

Wildlife biologists should also possess the following specific qualities:

  • Communication skills. Zoologists and wildlife biologists write scientific papers and give talks to the public, policy makers, and academics.

  • Critical-thinking skills. Zoologists and wildlife biologists need sound reasoning and judgment to draw conclusions from experimental results and scientific observations.

  • Emotional stamina and stability. Zoologists and wildlife biologists may need to endure long periods of time with little human contact. As with other occupations that deal with animals, emotional stability is important when working with injured or sick animals.

  • Interpersonal skills. Zoologists and wildlife biologists typically work in teams. They must be able to work effectively with others to achieve their goals or negotiate conflicting goals.

  • Observation skills. Zoologists and wildlife biologists must be able to notice slight changes in an animal’s characteristics, such as their behavior or appearance.

  • Outdoor skills. Zoologists and wildlife biologists may need to chop firewood, swim in cold water, navigate the rough terrain in poor weather, or perform other activities associated with life in remote areas.

  • Problem-solving skills. Zoologists and wildlife biologists try to find the best possible solutions to threats that affect wildlife, such as disease and habitat loss.

DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES FOR WILDLIFE BIOLOGY

Wildlife biologists typically do the following:

  • Develop and conduct experimental studies with animals in controlled or natural surroundings

  • Collect biological data and specimens for analysis

  • Study the characteristics of animals, such as their interactions with other species, reproduction, population dynamics, diseases, and movement patterns

  • Analyze the influence that human activity has on wildlife and their natural habitats

  • Research, initiate, and maintain ways of improving breeding programs that support healthy game animals, endangered species, or other wild populations of land or aquatic life

  • Estimate, monitor, and manage wildlife populations and invasive plants and animals

  • Develop and implement programs to reduce risk to human activities from wildlife and invasive species, such as keeping wildlife from impacting airport operations or livestock and crop production

  • Write research papers, reports, and scholarly articles that explain their findings

  • Give presentations on research findings to academics and the general public

  • Develop conservation plans and make recommendations on wildlife conservation and management issues to policymakers and the general public
