Pros and Cons of this Career

Pros:


1) Near an ocean-- This is good because I love the ocean and the animals in it. It is also good because you can study the water and animals in it better than if you were in Green Bay where there is no ocean.


2) Work With animals-- I love animals, I have wanted to work with animals since I was 10 years old. Now I get to work with them and save them.


3) Work outdoors-- This is a pro because I love the outdoors. My favorite thing to do is camping and going outside.


Cons:


1) Away from home-- This is a con because I won't get to see my family or friends. I would get to visit sometimes but not for very long.


2) Don't get many breaks-- This is bad because that means you working all the time and you don't get much free time.


3) You don't always start with what you want-- This is bad because maybe you wanted to swim with the animals and teach them to swim again, but sometimes they start you out somewhere you didn't wanna be.
