Many people tell me that they want to be a field biologist (and often a marine biologist, in particular) because they love to travel the world. It is true that you can often travel, sometime extensively, as a scientist, especially if you do field work in remote places of the world, like I do. BUT, as with most jobs, the travel is only a part of it (though a much enjoyed part!!). In this video, I break it down for future marine biologists (and scientists in general). Note: I recorded this a few weeks ago, while we were still on our expedition in Thailand — I’ve since completed more travels (i.e., TED in Africa + a stopover in Europe)! 😉
