UMaine Wildlife Conservation, Ecology Programs Cited in Online Schools Center Article

The University of Maine’s graduate wildlife conservation program and undergraduate wildlife ecology program were mentioned in the Online Schools Center article, “30 degrees that will get you dirty.” The report states both programs revolve around animals and their natural habitats, many in Maine, and could lead to a variety of field-based jobs such as wildlife biologist, conservation manager or park ranger. “The content of the bachelor’s program in particular is outdoorsy and exciting: students may go out in the field to assess the behavior of snowshoe hares, or even handle bear cubs in their own den,” the article states. “All this provides plenty of opportunity for getting back to nature — and possibly covered in fur.”
