---------- 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.

Best Wishes,
