Best Job Ever - Short Stories About Outdoor Jobs #bestjobever

National Geographic's YouTube channel has a relatively new playlist called #bestjobever.  The playlist features short stories about people who have interesting jobs that are primarily in the outdoors. These are primarily jobs incorporating some kind of conservation and or awareness missions. The playlist is embedded below. The first video in the series is about photographing beluga whales.

Applications for Education
One of the responsibilities that I feel I have as an educator is to expose students to job and career opportunities that don't fall into the traditional tracks. Videos like these can help students see that if they have a passion for something they could potentially turn that passion into a profession that they'll love.
