For further information about this major, contact Dr. Andrew Vermilyea, the WFC Coordinator: Andrew.vermilyea@castleton.edu

The B.S. degree in Wildlife and Forest Conservation has a foundation in biology and the ecological sciences with an emphasis on conservation and management of wildlife, biodiversity, and forests.  

This program prepares students for careers in wildlife and fisheries science, as well as in park and habitat management, among other conservation career paths.  Students could pursue these careers in federal, state, and local governments, or in the private sector via conservation organizations, NGOs, and consulting firms.  Graduates will be able to provide technical assistance to private landowners, conservation districts, and other organizations in ways to best manage their living resources for long-term sustainability.

While this program serves the local and Vermont areas, it is also appropriate for students interested in a global perspective of conservation biology.
