    There are ecology or environmental science degrees that contain substantial biological content (but with practical/hands on context built in).

    Is this the sort of job that you're interested in: https://www.prospects.ac.uk/job-profiles/ecologist

    If so then a ecology or environmental science degree is going to be your best option. In many cases those courses will have a common first year with other life science degrees (biology/zoology) and so would offer the flexibility to switch between those courses easily.
