Jean said:Not Necessarily, our senior aquarist has no formal qualifications but she is from a fishing family, where the whole family is very concerned about fish health/conservation etc and she does a FANTASTIC job!!
We take on volunteers as do many aquariums (some call it an internship!) 'tis a really good way to get experience!
So...just out of pure curiosity, do you think I would ever be able to one day...join my local aquarium to help feed the octopus they have there or any other sea creature animal? Either that, or just be a part of mantanence or taking care of it? Im sooo anxious to have an experience with the octopus they have there besides watching it in its tank all day. Even though I don't have professional marine biology education...only from school and basically knowledge on cephalopods of what iv already learned throughout years, I would love to help them there.
