Information on Careers in Marine Science has been compiled by The Mirage Department
of Animal Care to offer general information to those who wish to consider
a career in marine science.
To learn more about this field, there is no
substitute for hands-on experience -
therefore, we encourage you to get out and
VOLUNTEER, VOLUNTEER, VOLUNTEER!
Most zoos, aquariums and natural history
museums have volunteer programs that will
better expose you to some of the daily work
that goes on in this field. Our rule of thumb is
that after six months of volunteering at any
local facility, you will either love or hate this
field of study! No matter the outcome, give
yourself the opportunity to learn and grow -
you'll never know unless you try!
Individuals receive job offers in this field because of their skills in science
or engineering, not because they like or want to work with animals.
