Occupations By Field : Plants and Animals

This field involves mainly working outdoors, with activities associated with plants and animals. People in these careers have a passion for nature which is expressed through their curiosity and a need to explain how the natural world works: the interaction of animals in groups, the migration patterns of birds, the workings of an ecosystem and a food chain. Although these careers are not well paid, the worldwide emphasis on conservation and tourist opportunities has created increasing career opportunities.
