Joe Greathouse, an assistant professor of biology at WLU who designed the program, interned at the Good Zoo in 1998, and worked his way through several animal and conservation jobs. He's seen the benefits of pursuing such a career, and he believes the new program will offer students an experience unlike others because of the partnership with Oglebay.
He said the major doesn't have to lead to a career in zoos, but would be a good entry point for someone interested in veterinary work, wildlife rehabilitation or biological research.

"In West Virginia we know the populations have declined at least 40 percent over the past 30 years," Joe Greathouse, biologist with The Wilds, said. "It's our largest salamander this side of the world and we're losing it so we need to figure out why and we're trying to figure out techniques for increasing their populations but also returning them to the streams and rivers where they used to be where they're not there anymore."
One by one, teams walk up and down streams across the state, lifting rocks and putting nets on each side to catch a hellbender.
"After we catch the hellbender we'll take environmental measurements associated with the rock," Greathouse said.
"We collect water from streams and rivers, we filter that water, extract the DNA from filter pads, and then amplify the tiny little pieces of DNA with a machine that heats the DNA up really hot and then breaks it down," Greathouse said.
