This gentleman’s career path attempts to balance the beauty of land, the functionality of an area and the needs of both humans and animals with each other. Doing this kind of job might require advice in designing and planning the construction of the environment for a zoo, a restoration site, a park or a private home as well as many other locations. You get to work both outdoors and indoors and no two days will be alike. This is an interesting profession and one that combines art and knowledge of the natural world.
