You may have been inspired by heroic stories such as this one, where a women inspires young people to take up the profession.
However there is much more to the profession than meets the eye, so lets get into the steps and requirements needed to be a successful marine biologist.
Becoming a marine biologist will require you to take many different university course, and undertake practical exercises to gain experience.
You will also have to have a passion for animals, which underlines the entire experience and helps you enjoy your job.
The recent discovery of very old Greenland sharks is something that really intrigued me, especially as they are reported to live for almost 400 years!
The best course to start on is conservation biology, such as the one I took at Manchester Met University.
