    You would still need to have some college background if you want to be a fish and game officer or even a park police officer

  2. EHZ on October 14, 2021 at 8:15 am

    I never been happy with my jobs but what I’ve always loved is visiting new landscapes working with nature and traveling the world 🌍

  3. Rock Skipper on October 14, 2021 at 8:16 am

    There is no such thing as an invasive species .. God puts plants places because humans stopped living close to God/nature ….. There is a reason u don’t have to be smart/have a degree to cut out "weeds" / food for polinators of the earth

  4. Yup Yup on October 14, 2021 at 8:17 am

    great video!
    So my dad is an environmental technician in Morocco and he have been working as one for the past 20 so years
    I’m wondering whether finding a job related to his career in the Usa is possible

  5. badtostada on October 14, 2021 at 8:18 am

    the be a fish and wildlife you need to go to college,,, you cant just get into it willynilly

  6. Abby Smith on October 14, 2021 at 8:19 am

    Hi! Just wondering what your opinion is on getting an online ecology degree? I’ve been watching your videos for a while now, and I truly enjoy the information you share! 💜

  7. Jura Stanley on October 14, 2021 at 8:22 am

    Regenerative agriculture is something I’m really looking into not just through starting a college program but finding ways to get involved in it. I watched the Netflix doc ‘Kiss The Ground’ and was inspired to find out more. Thanks for sharing!

  8. SophieLoren on October 14, 2021 at 8:23 am

    Hi Kristina, i love your channel and content. I am so happy to have found you. Do you have any ideas for volunteer opportunities for people that love wildlife, but already have a job during the week? I live in Georgia, and am a elementary school teacher, The summer would be a great time for me to volunteer or on the weekends firing the year. Thank you for your help.

  9. Kate M on October 14, 2021 at 8:25 am

    Also: tree planting, trail maintenance (Parks Canada and Alberta Parks I know have this!), summer camp counselor, park interpreter (again with parks). Some overlap with some things you’ve mentioned but just thought I’d add those in 🙂

  10. Fiona Blom on October 14, 2021 at 8:25 am

    I have a passion for art and for biology but I’m having a hard time choosing for school, I’m 3 years into an art degree but I’m having serious thoughts about making a mistake and wasting my time and money on this degree. Do you think it would be a safe bet to double major in biology and art? I just don’t know what I want to do with my life but I want it to be meaningful and enjoyable.

  11. LAF filmfest on October 14, 2021 at 8:27 am

    Thank u for great info!!!!

    I found this video searching "offseason jobs for wildland firefighters" could serve as a secondary title.

  14. Brandon Yang on October 14, 2021 at 8:30 am

    Can you make a video about how you feel about gray wolves being delisted from the endangered species list?

  15. Luis Reyes on October 14, 2021 at 8:34 am


  16. Abby Mercier on October 14, 2021 at 8:34 am

    Very helpful video! I’m looking forward to the next step to be a forest ranger someday

  17. Lemon_ Tea.11 on October 14, 2021 at 8:35 am

    Thank you so so much for this 🙏!!You are truly the best 😌💚!

  21. Halema Shah on October 14, 2021 at 8:40 am

    CAN U PLS REVIEW DAN SCHNEIDER?! He lives with a lion pride and claims he’s a part of it -_-

  22. Markg330 on October 14, 2021 at 8:42 am

    Wardens are required to have a bachelor’s degree in most states also

  23. Lor on October 14, 2021 at 8:42 am

    Love you for this!

  24. mothdust on October 14, 2021 at 8:45 am

    Is the fish and wildlife warden officer …the same as wild life stae trooper ?
    I believe there is an age dead line (not sure)

  25. Trevor McPhee on October 14, 2021 at 8:47 am

    wardens and fish and game officers require a degree in canada

  26. johnny Phoenix on October 14, 2021 at 8:48 am

    These videos are entertaining and educational thank you but if somebody were wanting a career only working outside in the field and the money wasn’t as important as staying in nature of course making enough to survive is relevant but not the most important a video would come in handy….. thanks again

  28. Isaiah Milton on October 14, 2021 at 8:49 am

    Does a arborist (arboriculture)
    Count as one?

  29. Life Spirit Outdoors on October 14, 2021 at 8:49 am

    There’s a lot more to being a fishing guide. You just don’t go out and do it. You have to know seasonal patterns ,weather ,different techniques that takes years to learn. A college degree in Marine biology does help immensely + Professional fishing background.The closest thing you could do with no experience you could help on a charter boat and be a deckhand to start.

    Sell them logs, get the money flowing.

  32. Mohit Sharma on October 14, 2021 at 8:53 am

    Hey.. Lovely video as usual… I had two qs in mind.. Firstly I want to do something around in nature along with my main course of neuroscience.. Bcz I luv being in nature.. So maybe if u have any kinda advices:). Also I have developed a kinda interest in marine archaeology. .. Can I like manage to do it if I do a simple bachelors in it?

  33. Rider on October 14, 2021 at 8:56 am

    If I were young again, I would seriously consider not going to college / university. Unless it’s for a science degree you’re wasting time. Get out and work in the field you love and you’ll never look back. Training can be provided on the job and really the universities and colleges are charging too much for the eduction they deliver. Also if almost everyone has a degree they become worthless.

    Really nice one! Thank you!

  36. James on October 14, 2021 at 8:58 am

    Wow… this helped me feel a bit less overwhelmed. 32 and looking to go to college finally. Wasn’t too sure what I could do to help get me started in the fields I’m Interested in.

    You rock

    With best of wishes and love friend

  39. Theresa Coles on October 14, 2021 at 8:59 am

    I’m currently in a co-op with the ministry of forestry in the seed production branch and I work with forestry technicians. It’s a really great outdoor season job and if you don’t know if you want to get a degree it’s a great way to learn more about the forestry industry.

  41. dinosaurman724 on October 14, 2021 at 9:02 am

    Question: say if I wanted to build my own nature preserve (like wide scale or something like that). Would that be something that would require a degree or can I just do it without one?

  42. Kevin Ocana on October 14, 2021 at 9:02 am

    So I just found your channel and as someone studying to be a Lab Technician, I really appreciate this. I’ve been having a bit of a hard time deciding on where I’d like to focus my career, volunteer ideas, etc.. your videos have been super helpful. I really appreciate your content. Keep up the great work!

  43. Amanda Verma on October 14, 2021 at 9:03 am

    Thank you so much for your videos… I discovered your channel earlier today and have been binge watching your videos all afternoon. I am just beginning the process of looking into going back to school with the goal of ending up in the outdoor/wildlife fields and it is feeling a bit daunting so it’s nice to see that there are many options out there.

  44. Jeffrey Gaughan on October 14, 2021 at 9:04 am

    Really interesting. I especially liked the part about wildlife photography; I’ve always liked photography, and have recently begun thinking of doing wildlife photography as a part-time thing. Other positions that were cool include forestry technician, agriculture worker, and Fish & Wildlife officer.

  45. Frank Critelli on October 14, 2021 at 9:05 am

    Worthy cause

  46. Ryan Anderson on October 14, 2021 at 9:05 am

    How would you get paid being a wildlife photographer

  47. sergel02 on October 14, 2021 at 9:07 am

    Fish and game warden sounds really interesting and unique.

  48. Cobus Byleveld on October 14, 2021 at 9:07 am

    Sorry Kristina…….but nothing will work no matter what everyone try or think’s. Humanity will keep on destroying everything……..lmao……..Degree…….college 🤪🤦‍♂️🤷‍♂️🙊🙈🙉🤞👋

  49. savannah davis on October 14, 2021 at 9:10 am

    Love your channel! At first I was going to go to school for nursing, but wasn’t sure, then a came across your channel and it changed my mind and now I’m majoring in Environmental Science Technology. I’ve been kind of nervous though because I’m going for my associates and this is my last year and I’m stressing because it seems like a lot of jobs in the field want a bachelors or higher but maybe working at these places would make my resume look better? Idk.

    Invasive species are only opportunistic.. not sure spraying chemicals on them is going to do anyone good in the long run..
