The Food, Agriculture, Animals, and Natural Resources career community is designed to assist students interested in agricultural production and marketing; animal study and care; food research, development, production, safety, and marketing; government policies and regulations; and nutrition, health, and pharmaceutical research and management. The career community also addresses natural resources management, including forestry, fisheries and aquaculture, water management, and the relationship of community development to natural resources.
