Marine BiologyBy: Berenice PerezMarine Biologist:
Marine biology is a very large field.
Considering that the world is covered by more than 70% of water, Marine Biology can have a lot of branches.
Marine Biology is such a varied field of study, a marine biologist typically picks a single aspect to focus on. For example, a marine biologist might specialize in fisheries conservation, or rehabilitation of injured marine mammals.
A Marine Biologist out on the field.
As a Marine Biologist the Pay varies.
Some one who is starting might get between 45,000 and up
It depends if you are working for the government or a private company.
It also matters how much experience you have ( Masters, PhD)
Some one with more experience can earn above 75,000
The job can be dangerous but really fun.
My Love for the sea
The main reason why I want to become a Marine Biologist is because I love the sea and respect it.
Every time I go to the beach, instead reading a book and getting a tan, I explore and see what is under the rocks when the tie goes down.
I will find some seaweed and try to find living organisms in it.
I know very few people actually get to do all the research and travelling but I believe that I am going to be one of those few who get to say I am a Marine Biologist, I love what I do and I know I am contributing to making the earth better.
A piece of coral I found along the beach.
One of the many sea stars we found.
A turtle we found along the beach. It was eating grass and other vegetation.
During summer many dolphins have offspring and feed near the shore.
One of the many protected sea turtle nests. They hatched in a month.
As you can see I have some experience with marine wildlife and the environment. I also believe fishing has helped me getting familiar with the environment.
Hopefully I will become an amazing marine biologist.
