Wildlife and Fisheries Science Major, BS in Wildlife and Fisheries Science – Wildlife and Fisheries Management Concentration


Wildlife and fisheries management is the science and art of maintaining populations of wild animals at levels consistent with the best interests of wild species and of the public. Management goals may be aesthetic, economic, or ecological. Success depends upon wildlife and fisheries biologists providing assistance; scholarly application of scientific information and methods to these goals; ecological perspective; and execution of programs to maintain past successes, to prevent repetition of past failures, and to prepare for future needs.
