Why I find this career interesting

I find a marine biologist interesting because you get to work with marine life and experience things you would never get to experience in a normal life. You get to see the way marine life act and live and study them by behavior. And also studying organisms and discovering the way they work and live as well! Being in the ocean overall is the coolest!
