What prerequisites are required to go into a Marine Biology-Entertainment field, like a show animal trainer?

Asked Ava, Missouri

Marine biology has always been a part of me, I've always loved it. I find it amazing that we can train dolphins and orcas and use that training to educate people on growing concerns for these beautiful animals. #marine-biology #entertainment #marine-mammals #mammal-training

To work with animals such as whales, dolphins, seals, and sea lions, you will need to study marine biology, ecology, environmental science, and psychology. Internships and volunteer with as many places that you can that allow you to gain experience with large animals, animal care, marine science, and animal training. You will need to be comfortable speaking in front of large groups of people about conservation issues, animals, training, and whatever other questions they can think of.
