Hi, my name is Amber MacLeod. I'm a junior at Homestead High School in
Ft. Wayne, IN. I'm interested in pursuing a career in marine biology or
oceanography. I might be staying down in Oldsmar, Florida (near Tampa) this
summer with family and I wanted to get a job down there or volunteer to get
some experience in this field. I was wondering if you knew of any programs
down there that I could get involved in for the time I'm staying there.
Also, going into my senior year of High School, I'm looking around for
different college opportunities. I want to attend a college with a good
marine biology program. What colleges have this kind of program? What kind
of things can I do before college to prepare for a career in Marine
Biology? Hopefully you can answer some of my questions, I'm looking forward
to hearing back from you.
Thanks for your time!
I'm afraid I'm not aware of any such opportunities in the Tampa area, but
some local inquiries should turn up something. I'll refer you to the
resource on marine mammal careers at
links will help you find the schools with good marine mammal programs and
the kinds of jobs available. I also recommend you take courses in the
so-called "humanities," like anthropology, sociology and linguistics,
because the more advanced studies of cetaceans are drawing on paradigms and
terminology found in those disciplines.
