Description:
Coffee with scientists is aimed at providing a time and space for students and young people to get up close and personal with us, to ask direct and probing questions about professional opportunities in the field of marine biology and conservation, about the current state of marine conservation in Colombia and Latin America, or just if we really just hug dolphins all day!  What is the reality in this profession? Idolised by many but understood by very few? What does a marine biologist really do? Job prospects? All questions on this topic are fair game.
