    Both are interesting areas, it is extremely hard to choose one from these two. Both are dealing with ecosystem, habitat and distribution and interaction of living beings. Wildlife could be one area with in ecology - there is a masters degree available in Wildlife ecology too. Taking a course in both areas can get you job in conservation and preservation of these habitats and ecosystems. Since ecology is a much more broader area, suggestion is to do a masters there and then pick one area to start working. But there is hardly any option you can derive out of these two. Then both these areas and two heavily focused research areas, where funding is abundant and it is just a question of guys taking in this course and develops an interest to work in the related areas.

    M. Sc course in Wildlife Science is mainly developed to impart training in the field of wildlife science and wildlife conservation. It is a program that prepares students to conserve and manage wilderness areas and the flora and fauna therein. It will also prepare students to learn on how they can manage wildlife reservoirs and provide zoological facilities for recreational, commercial, and ecological purposes.

    There are good job opportunities available in this field, mostly in the government sector. The Indian Forest Services is a good option. The Indian Council of Forestry Research and Education (ICFRE) and its affiliated Forestry research institutes employ trained personnel. NGOs which have taken up the job of preserving forests also appoint such individuals.

    The field of ecology can be considered to be about the environment, the ecosystem and the relationship with living organisms. Some of the things a student is going to learn in Ecology are:

    How molecular techniques apply to ecological questions and environmental issues
    Monitoring environmental and pollution levels testing toxicity
    management of animal and plant populations for pest control purposes
    impact assessment and nature conservation and management
    conservation of biodiversity

    Students with an ecology degree can work in a variety of areas and it includes:

    Department of Forestry
    State and local government (forest, ecology scientists)
    Regulatory authorities such as the EPA
    Agricultural industries

    As you are doing your graduation in Zoology ,
    so you must have to get master degree in either wildlife or ecology.
    both are very entresting subjects .
    and in view of job also
    wildlife and ecology both are helpful to you .
    so as per your intrest in your graduation time, you justifywhich is better for you, both courses are having a lot of opertunity in Research.

    You are doing your graduation in zoology so you should go with anyone of it as per your interest because both ecology as wel as wildlife have a great opportunitie and have a wider scopes in both fields...so you should go with either wildlife or ecology in which you have interest.

    DEAR FRIEND IF YOU ARE PURSUING BSC ZOOLOGY THEN YOU CAN CHOOSE ANY OF THE STREAM IN MSC- WILDLIFE OR ECOLOGY.
    BOTH THE FIELDS ARE NEW AND IN INDIA HAVE LIMITED SCOPE OF JOBS . BUT YOU CAN BECOME A GOOD ACADEMICIAN BY DOING PHD LATER.
    ALSO I WOULD LIKE TO SUGGEST YOU THAT IF YOU WANT TO SECURE YOUR CARRER AT ANY COST GO FOR MSC ZOOLOGY OR MSC BIOTECHNOLOGY, IT WILL BE MORE FRUITFUL

    BEST OF LUCK

    according to me you should choose masters of the wildlife rather than ecology as because you can get a lots of projects and research jobs in this
    so you should prefer the post graduation in the wildlife stream after the graduation in the zoology
