Marine biologist – my dream job in Maldives

White sandy beaches, palm trees and turquoise blue water – the paradise on earth and my office. My name is Alexandra and I am the resident marine biologist at Huvafen Fushi (Maldives). A country made of corals is my new home since August 2019. With my colleague Hassan Hamid, a local, we try to make this world and especially Huvafen Fushi’s marine environment a bit better. I was always drawn to the ocean magic maybe due to my childhood at the Baltic Sea. I have been starting scuba diving with the age of 12 years. Traveling to different countries and conducting internships worldwide made me realize how severely our oceans are threatened. Plastic pollution in Maldives and unsustainable fishing in Egypt are just a few examples of currents threats which I have experienced in person and made be stronger to be a part of making a difference. From very little I always had a passion for our oceans but with time and experiences you realize how competitive this field is. With my previous experiences working in the Maldives I have decided to return and start my career. Being a marine biologist is not swimming with dolphins every day, it is hard work and trying to change mindsets and breaking old habits as well educating locals in developing countries. I chose Huvafen Fushi as it is a very small resort island, thus the number of team members is below 300 people. I prefer working with properties which offer exclusive service with the personal touch, meaning you greet the guest by name and connect. Guests and staff members become friends, and unforgettable memories are recreated. Positive feedback and big smiles on guest faces remind me always why I chose to become a marine biologist. I cherish my job as I can freely express my love for the ocean and meet the guests need at the same time. My dream job is truly rewarding in the Maldives. Working in paradise comes with sacrifices Working and living in paradise also comes with sacrifices such as European food. I cannot tell you how much I miss home food and cooking. Of course, you make friends in the resort some are closer to you than others. It is important to have a strong character as there will be always challenges. Thus, it is important to have at least one close friend with who you can share everything.… weiterlesen
