Why Is Field Biology The Most Beautiful Job In The World

Traveling to the most beautiful places in the world is everyone’s dream. But, to some people, it is a job. Field biologists go to every nook and cranny of the planet, discovering new species and working with some of the most exotic animals in the world. I was lucky enough to take part in such research, mostly studying colorful, yet poisonous frogs in the Amazon and Madagascar rain forests.
