Wildlife Care and Handling Minor

students holding bear cubThe Wildlife Care and Handling minor enables students to develop an understanding of wildlife care and handling. It will be especially attractive to students in in programs such as wildlife, animal science, biology, natural resources, and environmental studies. Students become acquainted with diagnosis, animal handling, ethics, and population-level concerns of animal care. Any direct involvement with medical care will be under the supervision of a licensed veterinarian.

All minor requirements must be taken A-F (unless only offered S/N), and students must earn a grade of at least C- in each course in the minor. If you have questions, contact the Minor Coordinator.
