Reply: Dear Liz,
I chose my job because I always have had a passion to work with and help
marine mammals. My job involves studying whales and observing their
behaviors but to go out in the field with the whales you have to prepare.
This requires time to write proposals to get the funding to allow you to
work in remote places where whales go. It also requires writing reports
about your observations and other administrative and research like duties
that require working in a lab or at a desk.
Go to WhaleNet's ed_resources section to learn more about how to pursue a
career in marine biology.
