Let's compare their salaries. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that wildlife biologists earned an average annual income of $63,230 as of May 2014. The top ten percent of wage earners made a yearly income of $96,720 or more, and the lowest ten earned $38,080 or less per year. The BLS reported that in May 2013, the average annual salary for an ecologist was $50,070.
Though they both have similar jobs, biologists make an annual income of $63,230 while ecologists only make an average annual salary of $50,070, proving that wildlife biology is a better job for people who would like to make more money if they work hard at it. In my opinion, I feel that they should earn the same as each other, seeing as their jobs are alike in many ways and would offer both to live like each other. For example, if a married couple living together both worked as one an ecologist and one is a biologist, the one as an ecologist would not be able to hold up as well as the biologist. Both jobs are connected in many ways. The ecologist studies the animals and plants and tells the biologist what needs to be done to help that species. And in turn the biologist provides for the ecologist.
