There's no jobs in the only field that interests me

Hi, everyone. I am having a really hard time with this.

I did a lot of graphic design in high school. I enjoy it and everyone is pressuring me to become a graphic designer while I'm on the fence about it. On one hand, I enjoy it, but if I had it as a career I honestly don't know. You have to deal with bad clients all the time, and the pay is terrible.

However, I know that I have a passion for the environment and everything in it. I want to protect it and preserve it. I feel that all life is precious. I've always just felt this weird connection to animals and plants alike, and I'd love to do research out in the field or become a conservation biologist. So if I follow my passions, I'd major in biology with an environmental biology concentration, which the school I'm planning on attending has.

But I've been doing a lot of research, almost all of those jobs require at least a master's. I'm ok with getting an advanced degree but I would just be in so much debt. I'll already be in deep just from undergrad.

So should I follow my passions? I'm really at a loss. Sorry if this is long.
