Take time to look through this Nancy Stevick at the College of the Atlantic/Allied Whale put this together. Mike Williamson WhaleNet ---------- Forwarded message ---------- Here are some resources I have put together for teachers. The first is a listing of curriculum resources, and the second is a general bibliography on whales. The Teacher Resource Center at the New England Aquarium is a stupendous resource. Joel Rubin has lots of materials he can loan to you for free or for a small fee. Information on how to contact him is included in the list of curriculum resources. I would also encourage you to check out the affliates page on the WhaleNet homepage, and to check out the list of marine mammal homepages listed on the WhaleNet homepage. Some of these contain good information. I especially find the NMFS Office of Protected Resources a great reference. It contains very complete species accounts of many endangered species of marine mammal. Good luck in your collecting. If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact me again.
