Wildlife Ecology & Management students get a hands-on education

The wildlife and ecology management bachelor's degrees sets students up for a career in the outdoors. Take what you learn in the classroom and apply it outside, supplemented with a lot of face-to-face time with professors.

Ecological Management and Conservation Biology

– We’re in the middle of a biodiversity crisis; the sixth mass extinction event on Earth. Over half of the world’s wildlife has vanished in the last fifty years. There is unprecedented pressure on the environment due to exploitation, habitat degradation and loss, climate change, invasive species, pollution and emerging diseases. You can be part of something to help address this.

Wildlife Management Principles: Understanding Population Dynamics

Wildlife population models can be quite simple and straightforward. As we add more detail to a model, the only to do the hundreds and sometimes thousands of calculations needed is with a computer. We can think of computer simulation models as tools that help us visualize and represent the thinking we already do.

Conservation and Restoration Ecology: Crash Course Ecology #12

Hank wraps up the Crash Course on ecology by taking a look at the growing fields of conservation biology and restoration ecology, which use all the kung fu moves we've learned about in the past eleven weeks and apply them to protecting ecosystems and to cleaning up the messes that we've already made.

Wildlife Biologist Career at Work (A Day in the Life) US Fish and Wildlife Service FWS Demonstration

A wildlife biologist works to study species’ and environments’ interaction with habitats and ecosystems; in the 1981 Before My Memory Fades: My Years as a Fish & Wildlife Biologist, Colorado State University wildlife biologist Dwight Smith studied plants and animals near the Rocky Mountains’ Continental Divide, where, for four and a half months, he lived in a “primitive” eighty-five year-old log cabin “that had been the center of a gold-mining operation.” In 1980, a publication by the U. S. Department of Agriculture, Wildlife Management Office, Intermountain Region stated that “in recent years, the minimum requirement has consisted of at least a master’s degree from an accredited college or university,” though, in the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ Occupational Outlook Handbook, 2016–2017 Edition, the “Typical Entry-Level Education” requirement was listed as a “[b]achelor's degree.”

In this 2012 video, wildlife biologist Chelsea Corcoran-Quadt (Chelsea McKinney), a fish and wildlife biologist for the United States’ Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS), explains a FWS objective to protect endangered species, occupations within the FWS, mist nets, the capture, weight measurement and identification tagging of birds with anklet bands, and interest application to jobs within the FWS.

Wildlife Ecology and Management

(No Audio)
In this wildlife ecology and management class, students are learning forestry techniques for measuring forest health, economic value and value to wildlife. Students collected data on old growth trees in Virginia's Paul State Forest using Biltmore sticks, clinometers, DBH tapes, increment borers and wedge prisms. The data was compared to the economic and habitat value of a data set on the Alaska's Tongass Forest.

Trail cameras were also set up to monitor staked down deer antlers in order to find out how much mass and length was lost to the antlers over time from rodent consumption.
