Wildlife biologists design and conduct studies on the wildlife resources of Texas. Wildlife biologists manage wildlife in a specified region and may work with big game, small game, birds and nongame, and/or urban wildlife. Wildlife biologists conduct surveys of wildlife species and their habitats, formulate recommendations for hunting seasons and bag limits, analyze data, prepare reports, act as professional witnesses during public hearings and supervise wildlife technicians. Wildlife biologists frequently assist landowners with the conservation, management and development of wildlife habitat and the proper management of the various wildlife populations which utilize that habitat. Wildlife biologists also directly manage wildlife habitat and conduct research and public hunts on 49 wildlife management areas across the state.
