Booklist - 10/01/2017 Aided by a dynamic, photo-rich layout, this entry in the STEAM Jobs You’ll Love series neatly and informatively explores careers in wildlife conservation. After a brief introduction to the field, it breaks down different potential career paths using STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Mathematics). The most natural section, science, showcases jobs in ecology and forestry, while the technology section explains how new technological advances, such as remote-controlled cameras, help wildlife biologists get closer to wild animals. Similarly, conservation engineers work to show animals to people without negatively impacting their habitats, and wildlife photographers and illustrators make up the art section. In math, conservationists use statistics to assist biologists. Frequent STEAM Spotlight sections provide more details about specific jobs and the field at large, and varied graphs and photographs add more insight to this instructive guide. - Copyright 2017 Booklist.
