Our oceans are brimming with life—from massive blue whales to microscopic plankton. But every year, roughly 17.6 billion pounds of plastic is dumped into the ocean—the same as nearly 57,000 blue whales. Our oceans also support human life—from regulating the Earth’s temperature to supporting livelihoods.
Your personal marine conservation career path isn’t always clear from the outset. With so many options—from conservation policy and field science, to managing non-profits, to park operations—you need guidance and a head start.
