The only issue with working on an important wildlife species that... well, sometimes wildlife actually wants to eat the delicious chestnuts out of your study trees. Here's some bear damage that one of my trees and destroyed a few datapoints.

As a child, I wanted to be a herpetologist just so I could study these awesome creatures. Now I study trees and fungi because they're easier to catch!
