Hi, my name is Rachel. I'm looking to be a wildlife biologist and I was wondering if I would be working long hours plus weekends and holidays. I'm only wondering because I'd like to know ahead of time if I'll mostly be working or will I also have time for my family. Also, how much time is spent doing paper work and dealing with the public?

There isn't just one type of wildlife biology job so what job you end up taking will depend on what your priorities and circumstances are at the time. You most certainly will be able to make time for a family. As you get more senior the amount of paperwork does increase but there is a good chance you'll have an admin team to help. How much public engagement you do and what form it takes is up to you.
