How to Become a Biologist
To prepare for becoming a wolf biologist, take as many math and science courses as possible in high school. English and typing are also important. Choose a college or university with a strong program in wildlife management, biology, zoology, ecology, or conservation biology. Check the Internet for those close to you. A Bachelor’s and Masters or Ph.D. degree will be necessary. The following universities have such programs, but there are many more: Cornell, Purdue, University of Wisconsin, University of Montana, University of Michigan, University of Idaho, and University of Minnesota.
In your spare time, gain experience with hunting, fishing, trapping, camping, hiking, cross-country skiing and other outdoor pursuits.
Many people must compete for few jobs, so it takes persistence and hard study. But you will find it worthwhile.
