There are many ways undergraduate students interested in terrestrial wildlife ecology can gain valuable experience in this field.
Terrestrial Wildlife Ecology Laboratory - Ohio Division of Wildlife Internship Program
Provides students an opportunity to acquire hands-on experience in the fields of wildlife biology, wildlife management, and environmental education. Interns will be given a unique opportunity to:
(1) gain valuable and diverse field experience,
(2) observe daily operations of the state’s principal wildlife agency, and (3) form beneficial professional relationships with wildlife biologists and managers.
Through such experiences and interactions, interns will have the opportunity to gain personal insight into the kinds of wildlife-related work that they would like to pursue in their professional careers and to shape their educational programs accordingly.
