Conservation Scientist

Conservation scientists work with private landowners and federal, state, and local governments to manage, improve, and protect America's natural resources. Usually this involves advising and consulting with farmers and ranchers on the best ways in which they can improve their land and productivity without damaging the environment.

There are two types of conservation scientists. The first, range managers, oversee the use of rangelands. Rangelands are areas set aside for livestock grazing, timber production, wildlife protection, recreation, and other uses. The job of the range manager is to allow a reasonable level of commercial activity while administering and enforcing conservation measures. Range managers may work with wildlife managers, foresters, and scientists.
