Hi Preethi,
Some careers that come to mind include: toxicologist, hydrologist, zoologist, oceanographer, meteorologist, bioengineer, environmental engineer.
Keep in mind that with the exception of engineering, most of the cool nature jobs will require a Master’s. Additionally, you will most likely be conducting research unless you go for something in policy or law.
I would recommend you visit the UCSD Scripps Institution of Oceanography website and have a look at all the cool majors and current projects they’re currently working on.
