Career Spotlight: Conservation Scientists and Foresters

Students with a love of nature are often drawn to learn more about careers in conservation science and forestry.  The job duties can vary widely depending on the employer.  While some foresters are in the business of preventing destruction, other foresters are consulted for their expertise when timber is going to be sold.  A student considering a career in conservation science and forestry can learn more from the Occupational Outlook Handbook.

The Council on Forestry Promotion and Recruitment in Canada has put together an interactive web tool called GoForestry, which allows the user to select interests and receive a list of related careers in forestry,.

Interested students should also read up on Baylor’s interuniversity Forestry program with Duke University.
