    • To pursue a career Wildlife Biology requires a strong background in sciences, chemistries, and biology.
    • Both fields require a high school diploma and earning a degree from college.

    • As stated by the United States Department of Labor, job growth in the Engineering Field is expected to grow by 11% over the next decade.
    • Opportunities as a Biological Scientist are projected to explode, growing nearly 21% over the next decade.
    • A Mechanical Engineer with less than one year experience has a median starting salary of $48,000 - $60,000.*
    • A Wildlife Biologist or Zoologist working with no experience has a median starting salary of $28,000 - $36,000. *
