"Every high school, community college, and university library should consider adding this book to their resource collections."

"Becoming a Wildlife Professional is a comprehensive and clearly written guide for students of biology, ecology, and conservation who want to work with wildlife. Particular attention is paid to the education needed to obtain a wildlife professional qualification, but accurate descriptions of most of the careers related to wildlife and conservation are provided... The authors encourage students to follow their career path and obtain their dream job and provide useful guidance on how to do it."

"The authors provide sound advice and key principles that will lead students to succeed in academic work and a career, stressing disciplinary, communication, and interpersonal skills... The volume's invaluable treatment may indeed encourage more students to pursue rewarding careers that focus on wildlife. Highly recommended."

"Billed as 'the first comprehensive book to describe the entry-level jobs available for the next generation of wildlife biologists and conservationists,' this tome covers everything a student could want to know about 100 different career options."

"This book is [a] treasure trove of advice for high school students through PhD candidates and early professionals. I found the guidance to be informative, practical, and realistic... Every high school career counselor, undergraduate student advisor, and graduate student advisor should have a copy of this book to loan to students to get them thinking strategically about pursuing their career."

"Becoming a Wildlife Professional provides a wealth of guidance and information for aspiring wildlifers... To help guide these future professionals, I recommend that all wildlife professors keep a copy of this book readily available, just as most do with copies of their favorite data analysis and techniques texts."

"Becoming a Wildlife Professional is a unique and valuable reference. It is a must read for those wildlife professionals that have been around a while and are often asked for sage advice by the up-and-coming wildlife biologist. Alternatively, it can serve as a soon-to-be, well-worn reference and ''how to'' manual for students and recently minted professionals... This book is a great addition to the library of wildlife professionals at any stage of their career to help build a robust pipeline of wildlife biologists ready to tackle the 21st century challenges of protecting, managing, and conserving wildlife for future generations."
