course credit will be for Biology of
                                   Marine Mammals, the other for
Conservation of Marine Mammals.

Costs:            $3,000 per student, which includes room and board,

boat field trip expenses.

Description:   The combined courses provide a thorough and intensive
forum in which students can
                     learn about marine mammals and their conservation
from some of the top marine
                     mammalogists and other scientists in the country.
Specifically, the courses provide the
                     following: a) an opportunity to observe or to work
with a wide variety of marine
                     mammal species either in the wild or in captivity;
b) fundamental principles of
                     behavioral ecology, evaluation, communication,
cognition, functional morphology and
                     physiology; c) application and illustration of
these principles using various marine
                     mammal species; d) hands-on opportunities to engage
in field and laboratory
                     techniques used in marine mammal research; e)
opportunities to learn about the
                     threats posed by environmental contaminants; f) the
chance to get to know a number
                    of leading marine mammal scientists and educators;
and g) exposure to and discussion
                    of policy and conservation efforts involving marine
mammals.

Evaluation:    Based on exams, laboratory and field reports, and
participation.
