Hello there!

Hi there! I am a sophomore in high school and I am interested in marine biology. Unfortunately I live in the Midwest. I hoping to get so more information about marine biology and learn some things about marine life too. Well that's all for now :-) .

Howdy! Welcome to the forums. There's lots you can do these days with libraries and online resources - you don't necessarily have to be *at* the ocean to learn about it. :) I got scuba certified in Michigan! I do highly recommend reading through some of marinebio.org - it's a great site, and you'll learn lots about the ocean and marine biology. Cheers!

A whale killed a dolphin but he was acquitted because he didn't do it on porpoise.
