Subject: teacher's packet available

     Available to interested folks,
     The Minerals Management Service (U.S. Dept of Interior) has, hot off 
     the presses, a teacher's packet about whales and dolphins of the Gulf 
     of Mexico.  This is a companion to the Gulf of Mexico whale and 
     dolphin poster that the MMS published about 3 years ago.  Information 
     in the packet includes coverage about evolution, biology, the Gulf's 
     species, human impacts on the animals in this area, classroom 
     activities, and a listing of helpful web sites and references.
     Both the packet and poster are free.  Please contact (do not hit the 
     reply key):

     There are plans to make the packet available thru the MMS web site in 
     the near future as well.
