What can I do in high school to prepare for a career in wildlife biology?

I want to pursue a career in wildlife biology or conservation biology. At my school, there are extensive programs to prepare students for a career in the medical services, and engineering. There's classes for theatre and visual arts, as well as other performing arts programs, however there does not seem to be anything at my school to expose my to the areas of my interest. Is there something I can do on my own time to get some sort of experience/exposure to wildlife/conservation biology? If so, what? #wildlife-biology #conservation-biology #wildlife-conservation #career-opportunity-and-preparation #college-prep

Degree in biology... art/environment/science?

Hello, I graduated last year with a degree in biology in Florida... I've been pre-dental since 2010. I applied last cycle with a GPA of 3.4 and a DAT score of 17. I'm aware my DAT score isn't the best, and considering how competitive the dental career is becoming, I don't expect that to be enough. I've been "studying" to retake this dreadful exam for a few months now, though I can't deny I've had my ups and downs and have become discouraged. In the mists of all this time to think, I can't help but wonder what else is out there for me. I also know that every year about 12000 students apply to dental school and only less than half get accepted, so I'm not alone, but I also can't wait forever for something I'm questioning myself on so much; even if its only out of discouragement. I've always been a very artistic and creative person.... so i just can't help but wonder if theres something out there that I can use my biology degree in. I've been trying do so some research, but I'm in desperate need for more guidance. Helping our environment has also been something thats always intrigued me... So something where I could use my biology degree/ help the environment/ perhaps something artistic of some kind would be awesome... design of some sort/perhaps for health (idk how that works but someone mentioned it, i just can't find much information )....any ideas?Even if its in another country... I've just been so fixated on the "health department" aspect of things that just require you to apply to some kind of grad school, that now I'm just lost and don't know much of anything else because I didn't expect this to happen.... but life throws us curveballs and thats okay. These are just ideas I'm trying to seek, I'm still going to attempt applying this cycle to see whats happens, but I don't want to not explore because theres a voice in me that wants me to really see if theres something else I'll be passionate about..I'm still young, I just don't want to waste time because its more precious that money and I want nothing more than to learn and contribute... But feeling as stagnant as Im feeling isn't helping any drive in me whatsoever. This world is vast and filled with ideas, there has to be other options I'll be great for. (side note; all this time thinking just makes me think of the downside of dentistry I so often hear about: arthritis, tendonitis, back pain/problems, overstress, not to mention the student debt 300k-500k... most expensive career apparently) #science #environmental #career-change #advisor #sustainability #conservation-biology #sustainable-design

Would a marine biology degree or a marine ecology degree be more beneficial to an aspiring marine biologist?

I want to become a marine biologist. I will be attending Western Washington University. From what I understand, marine ecology tends to be an easier degree to attain, so I planned to get a marine biology degree with the biology department. My dilemma is that Huxley College of the Environment (where I would get a marine ecology degree) is quite renowned. #marine-biology #ecology #marine-mammals #conservation-biology
