I have decided to become a member of the MBA (Marine Biological Association) in order to further my skill and understanding in the career path that I want to pursue. Based in Plymouth, they provide opportunities and support for marine biologists and ecologists across the UK, funding research programs and providing laboratories to biologists in need.
As a member I now receive an interesting and informative magazine every so often, keeping me up to date on what is going on in the community. They also provide a number of opportunities and lessons to budding marine biologists, such as their work experience program that I intend to apply for. If you have an interest in marine biology, or simply want to read more about them, you can find their website here. If you are considering becoming a marine ecologist or any related job in the UK, I urge you to become a member as soon as possible.
