Dear Kathleen,

Some good graduate programs in marine mammal behavior can be found at the
following schools in the U.S. :

University of California at Santa Cruz
Cornell University
Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute - contact:  Peter Tyack
University of Hawaii 
Texas A&M at Galveston - contact: Berndt Wursig     

St. Andrews University in Scotland has one of the
best marine mammal programs outside of the U.S.  A person to contact there
is Paul Thompson.

The Society for Marine Mammalogy also has a website geared towards guiding
students interested in a career in marine mammals.  The address is
http://pegasus.cc.ucf.edu/~smm/home.html

I hope this helps to get you started!

Cheers, Leah
