Questions you should ask yourself:
>Why do you want to do this?
>Are you really good at academic coursework (especially science and math)?
>Are you prepared to study long hours in school and work long hours after graduating?
>Do you enjoy lots of physical labor while outdoors in all kinds of weather conditions?
>Do you get easily frustrated?
>If no to the above, still think you can be zen while dealing with the bureaucratic red tape surrounding funding and permitting?
>Will you still enjoy your low-paying marine biology job 8 years into your career?
These questions brought to you by a biologist-anon of the terrestrial sort.

a biology degree is easy to get
that's why a biology career is almost impossible to get.

Can confirm, I barely study and only have 2 classes to end my degree. Also biology degree is shit for someone who wants to go into wildlife, a lot of shit classes (biochemistry, molecular biology, organic chemistry...)

I say this as a wildlife guy myself.

Start by learning freshwater =/= marine

Biology degrees vary wildly depending on institution, some places you will never talk a math beyond statistics and trigonometry or a single physics class. Bio is typically a joke degree at those places. Schools that have a biology program that isn't lolpremed will have you take at least calc 2 and a semester or two of algebra based physics. At my school, other than two english classes(research writing and speech) and one humanities(I took logic) every other academic class is a science or a math for the entire four years. Oh biology as has the largest drop of percentage of any degree. There are few classes that are hard, the issue is more having 4 challenging classes as semester....rather than 1 hard as fuck class and 3 classes you just show up for, looking at you physics.

What would be a better alternative than?

Wildlife Ecology and Conservation if you want a job related to such. (Not the same poster, but I have a zoology degree and minor in wec)

OP check out the Evergreen State College! I'm doing marine science and there's a buttload of internships.

gators often hang in brackish and saltwater.

traditionally they belong to herpetologists tho.

Would a major in bio with an minor in conservation work? Or would i want to go zoology. Sorry i'm really not well versed in how the schooling system works. But i plan on talking to a lot of counselors

Thank you ! I heard about them. Is Univeristy of Washington any good? I heard they are a good science school.
