In the environmental science field, there's something for everyone!
We would like to encourage you to explore careers and topics related to the field of environmental science. February features a wide array of opportunities, as well as the specialized work of those dedicated to conservation efforts, sustainability, and natural resources. Environmental endeavors are surprisingly eclectic and those involved have backgrounds and passions that create a rich tapestry of talents. There is truly something for everyone who wishes to get involved in creating a positive pathway to the future of our planet.
Do you know the Dr. Suess fable, The Lorax? It is a story of environmental devastation caused by unchecked development and greed - only the Lorax is willing to take a stand and defend nature and "speak for the trees". Like the Lorax, people who wish to defend the earth from catastrophic challenges like climate change, ecological systems collapse, and food/water scarcity might consider a career in environmental law. After all, creating a more sustainable and resilient planet takes dedicated earth advocates with a passion for justice.
