Wildlife Biologist Resume

The responsibilities of a wildlife biologist include studying animals or plants, their impact on humans and their relation with the environment, carrying out investigative research in order to find new solutions for improvement, using scientific equipment to study samples and computers to maintain records of the collected and interpreted data.


Although many duties of wildlife biologists include laboratory research, they also have to do field research, such as collecting tissue and blood samples of animals from the wild and studying animal and plant behavior.

In order to become a wildlife biologist, you are required to have a bachelor's degree in the field of wildlife biology, but also in related fields like ecology and zoology. Students who have taken courses in biology, chemistry or physics in high school may have an advantage when applying for a wildlife biology major and they can even specialize in certain fields, such as marine habitats or wildlife conservation. For furthering a career in this field, a Ph.D. or a master's degree will be necessary.
