Environmental Scientist

Environmental scientists study the environment, and provide advice to avoid or reduce harmful effects on the environment. Environmental scientists are concerned with protecting the natural environment and its organisms, and protecting the needs of future generations who may be detrimentally affected by environmental abuses.

The role of an environmental scientist varies depending on their employment. For example, an environmental scientist can lecture in universities, educate the public via environmental advocacy programmes, conduct research in a private or public laboratory, or work with the government on developing policies to protect the natural environment.
