  • Is a double major worth it?

Yes. Double major is good since both are highly inter-related. If your finances allow it, then discuss with your parents and a counselor and go for it. To do wildlife, it is usually quite a rough life. You need to be very strong physically, emotionally and very fit, alert to wildlife dangers. Some jobs in wildlife conservation may be more office bound.

It depends on how much overlap there is. In general, a double major is not impressive because it says to an employer that you are unfocused. A major with a related minor is usually better. However, these two seem that they are very similar, almost two parts to a same degree. Might be worth it if you're not sure what you want to do.
