If there was ever a more appropriate time than the beginning of The Wildlife Society‘s annual conference to publish news of the recently published Becoming a Wildlife Professional from Johns Hopkins University Press, I cannot think of what it might possibly be.

Edited by Scott E. Henke and Paul R. Krausman, and featuring a veritable who’s who of experts in the field (many of whom likely traveled to Albuquerque in order to attend the above-noted conference) of chapter authors, the book is indeed a “how-to manual […] an essential text for wildlife science students interested in making themselves marketable for employers across a wide spectrum of wildlife jobs.”
