The Ocean Mammal Institute presents
Field Research on the Hawaiian Spinner Dolphin
June 6, 1998 to July 4, 1998

In this pioneering research we will study the impact of swimmers on the
dolphins in a beautiful, untouched area in Hawaii.  These dolphins feed
at night and rest during the day.  Increasing numbers of tour boats, and
swimmers around the dolphins is causing concern.  As the popularity of
the dolphin increases we must be sure that in our enthusiasm to be with
the dolphins, we are not creating stress for them.  The results of this
study will help us address this important issue.  We will have time to
nurture our bodies and souls in this unusually pristine, natural
setting .
The cost for 3 or 4 weeks is $1200 or $799 per week, which includes
tuition and accommodations.  Accommodations are in a house with communal
cooking.  Fly to Kona, HI.
