Significant Information: Conservation Scientists and Foresters




  • Nearly two-thirds of salaried conservation scientists and foresters work for Federal, State, or local governments.
  • A bachelorís degree in forestry, range management, or a related discipline is the minimum educational requirement.
  • Slower-than-average job growth is projected because of limited growth in government and in forestry and logging; most employment opportunities will be in private sector consulting.
