In a small town area, I also don't leave near an ocean, and don't plan on it, only small lakes. I need to start planning my future and I want a career involving animals, or the environment or something to do with policing. Preferably a well paying job, that doesn't involve constant moving and stuff.
Vet. Vet assistant. Animal groomer. Animal trainer. I've always thought it would be awesome to train special needs dogs....for lack of a better term. Like seeing eye dogs and dogs that help people with physical handicaps and stuff like that. You could work at an animal shelter or pet store. You could have an animal farm, not a working farm but more of a hobby one. You could get into animal shelters and adoption places/programs.
As for the environment, I'd suggest looking into environmental sciences and health.
Veterinary Pathologist, Animal Welfare Lawyer, Zoo Director, Animal-Assisted Therapist, Wildlife Rehabilitator, etc
