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 🙂
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.

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
