Thanks! Share it with your friends!


UPDATE: Inspired by YOU (the audience) and your response to this video, I’ve created a new YouTube series: Confessions of a Marine Biologist: http://www.youtube.com/sciallorg

Remember how everyone wanted to be a marine biologist at some point while growing up? Well, this video pays tribute to the wonderful and REAL world of marine biology. (Also, please keep in mind, we are actually working in these clips!)

Please share this video, especially with people who may consider marine science as a career! Hopefully, this makes their decision a little easier, and we are always recruiting πŸ™‚

This video would not have been possible were it not for the amazing people (many of whom are featured here) that make working as a field researcher on the island of Moorea, French Polynesia so special an experience.

Featured researchers are studying various aspects of coral reef community ecology, and they are based out of the University of Florida, California State University-Northridge, the University of California-Santa Barbara, and Victoria University of Wellington.

For more information, please visit: http://sciall.org
Please take a moment and answer a short questionnaire after watching (I will use your answers to help me apply for funding to make new, even better videos–thanks in advance!!): http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/CLWV2RX

I know this video was posted a while ago I still wanted to share my story…
I don't know where this came from but ever since I remember i would always feel more myself around the ocean it was like I needed it, it was just so interesting for me, maybe I got it from when I was 5 we went on a cruise and saw orca whales jumping out of the ocean, I haven't been to camps or anything like that, but my family loovveeesss to travel and when I mean love I mean love I've been to Mexico once and went scuba diving it was incredible. And I am very exited for the upcoming trips we are going on, they all involve the ocean, first we are going to the coast of Florida on a four day weekend that will be fun and then we are going to mexico again and staying on a beach house i am Soo exited and then got spring break we are going on an 18 hour flight to Australia near the coast where we used to live I can't wait to find the connection between me and the ocean again and I can't wait to get opportunities to learn more about the wonders of the ocean

Project Manaia - Ocean Conservation & Research says:

So this is how it all started πŸ˜€ quite an Improvement since then I would say πŸ˜‰

Gracie Murguia says:

I'm 12 years old. I'm doing research on marine biology and how to become a marine biologist. It sounds really hard, especially the fact that you need five GCSEs. (Or at least, that's what I read.) I really hope I get to become one and I really am trying my hardest to do my best in school so I can be successful at achieving my dream.

Liz Edwards says:

I'd call what I do an independent marine biologist. where I don't work for anyone. I do my own research and pass it on as well. I want to open an aquatic store. and have to to with everything marine life.

Hambone L says:

I'm extremely interested in marine biology mostly dealing with sharks and other fish like that I'm going to a summer camp in Florida to accomplish my dream. Wish me luck

Jaxston Evans says:

Love it I'm slowly starting my path of working with nature animals have always been my passion cannot wait until I make it a career

Groud Frank says:

That's it. I'm sold! I thought I had to get an I.T career to be happy. I like programming, get excited about the latest phones, laptops and components that power them. I use Linux, flash ROMs on my phone, write code, I spent a lot of time reading tech news articles, reading programming tutorials, etc but the more I do those things the more I realize I won't be happy in that career field. I dread the idea of doing work that requires me to sit for too long or jobs that don't require me to be physically active. I want to keep tech as a hobby and as a secondary interest and that way I think my passion for it will remain. The moment I make it something I have to do to survive I'll lose my passion for it. With Marine biology that isn't the case. There was a time when I wanted to be a marine biologist but I discarded the idea because I thought that it wouldn't make me a millionaire or famous like Mark Zuckerburg. But the moment I let go of those desires for money and fame I find that I just want to be happy doing my job, be close to nature and not be behind a desk most times. I know it's not all fun and happy times(no job is) but I think this line of work is what I would consider my dream job.
