Physical Danger

As you can imagine, a career so centered on animal populations and the environment may be a bit hazardous. Animal bites and tetanus shots will likely be commonplace if you are working on animal habitat conservation. And if plants are more your thing, maybe you buy stock in poison ivy balm and start building a wardrobe that nicely complements a red, bumpy rash. Or worse yet, maybe that water sample your boss needs ends up being laced with toxic chemicals. (And you probably waded through that lovely liquid to get the sample in the first place!) Oh, and grabbing yourself a bottle of SPF 30 and a nice floppy hat wouldn't be a bad idea either.
