Careers in Marine Mammal Science

The field of marine mammal science continues to be one of great appeal. However, many students are not fully aware of what the field entails or are unsure of the best way to get involved. 

For a dose of inspiration, read through the text of a presentation SMM Past President Dr. John Reynolds made at the 1999 Student Affairs Workshop entitled "Surviving professional puberty in marine mammalogy: things mom and dad didn't tell you."

The following links provide advice on how to pursue a career in the marine sciences:
