About this book

Understand how professionals manage the natural world with Wildlife and Natural Resource Management, 4th edition. From running fisheries and national parks to studying the environment and resources conservation, career opportunities abound in this growing field. In addition to professional perspectives, this all-new fourth edition encourages you to explore your wild side with vibrant, full-color photos and illustrations of animals, habitats, and endangered species, including ways to identify each.

As our human population continues to grow, the pressure on natural resources will inevitably increase. In the past thirty years humans have come a long way in terms of managing fish and wildlife, conserving soil, and protecting the water supply, but it is up to future generations to continue that progress. Wildlife and Natural Resource Management shows you the path to that future – and builds a greater appreciation for the natural world and its limited resources.
