What does an environmental scientist do? What kind of jobs does a degree in Environmental Science get you?

I'm starting to think about what I want to do once I complete my HSC (Year 12)... I am currently doing Biology and Environmental Science, and my teachers have been discussing with me a few career paths that might interest me. One which has, is Environmental Science... I know it entails researching Earth, the animals, air, land ect. I've heard that you can get a job conducting experiments with soil and air, things like that, which sounds really interesting to me. I am a big fan of protecting Earth, I'm very passionate about it... I think this planet is so precious, so unique and beautiful... I'm also really into astronomy. But what does it specifically entail?
