About The Event
Join us for stories from the field by Lauren McPherson, Wildlife Outreach Biologist, and Adrianna Bessenaire, Wildlife Biologist, both with the Maine Department of Fisheries and Inland Wildlife. Being a wildlife biologist is competitive, a labor of love, and requires a curious mind and can-do attitude. The reward for working with wildlife is great, but it is a demanding job! If you enjoy Maine’s wildlife in any capacity, thank a wildlife biologist for their constant work and commitment to the job in any and all conditions. Lauren and Adri will also provide tips for aspiring biologists regarding applicable science fields to get a degree, volunteering and networking opportunities, and other advice on positioning yourself well for a career as a wildlife biologist.
