Cutting down trees without permission is a crime. Trees are cut down and used for many purposes. Each kind of tree is different.
My job is to study the wood in trees. I build a database of the different trees. That helps us find trees that have been stolen from forests.

My dad gave me advice when I was young. He told me to find a job I love so much I’d do it for free. That’s pretty good advice. I’m glad I followed it. I’ve always loved animals and being outdoors.
My job is to teach people about nature. Working as a wildlife biologist allows me to make a difference in the world.
Ashley Coble tests water in a stream.
A hydrologist studies water. I help protect the water in forests. I learn how water moves through a forest. It can move through soil and into streams. I study what is in the water. I want to make sure the water is clean and healthy. That’s good for wildlife and good for people, too.
