    Dear Meghan

    There is a wonderful link on the educational resources page of the WhaleNet
    website which will give you lots of helpful information on pursuing a career
    in marine mammal science, and answer your questions. Go to and scroll down
    to "Careers". There are 10 links there. You probably will only need one of
    them, but if you still have more questions, go to others. I would start by
    clicking on "Careers in Marine Mammal Science - Society for Marine
    Mammalogy" - I know that's a good one and very straightforward.

    Good luck!

    Erich Hoyt
