A day in the life of an Ecologist? What is a day life for them and what do they do and how much money do they make?

Best Answer - Chosen by Voters

An ecologist is someone who studies the interaction of organisms and their environment. Many people confuse this with being an environmentalist.

There is no typical day. I have lectured. I have gotten up at 2:30 AM to count salmon. I have waded barefoot thru marshes to find bog turtles. I often spend hours at the computer doing computations and writing reports and position papers. I have spent endless hours at boring meetings. I have been out during downpours retrieving turtle traps. I have also built and repaired those traps. I have picked up scratches, lacerations, poison ivy, tick bites, and a couple of cases of bacillary dysentary.

Money varies with the position, the project, and how much education and experience you have. You don%26#039;t go into the field because you want money. You do it because you can%26#039;t imagine doing anything else. I will give you one hint. If you have to ask what I charge, you can%26#039;t afford me. This is not true of beginners with no experience and only a bachelor%26#039;s degree. 100% 4 Votes
