Working with Wild Wolves

Did you know that for some people, the wilderness is their office and wolves are their co-workers? Well, not exactly co-workers that they have coffee breaks with, but they do spend most of the day with them in their natural habitat

I am talking about wolf biologists, a specific type of wildlife biologist, who dedicate their lives to learning as much as they can about wolves. The wolf biologist gets up early in the morning, before the wolves themselves, and goes out to the wild to observe how those intelligent creatures behave and live.

The wolf biologists choose their specific research. It can be how a wolf acts around its pack versus alone, how wolves raise their cubs or even identifying possible human threats to this powerful animal. Part of their role may be temporary capture of wolves for medical care, tagging and recording.

In many parts of the world, wolves are an endangered species, so they require constant monitoring and protection. Many wolf biologists continue working in educational fields to teach about this magnificent animal and the importance of environmental protection. It is an excellent career for people who love working outdoors and enjoy wild environments.
