RE:     Copy of: Advance Whale Course: Summer Camp July 6-12

To anyone who is interested:

    This summer from July 6 - 12 I will be leading an Advance Whale Course:
Marine Mammal Ecology in the San Juan Islands of Washington State.  Island
Institute presents this high quality field course focusing on Orca whale

   This is a rigorous academic experience for college-age students, teacheres
and interested adults who already have previous knowledge about general marine
mammal biology (recommended age 18 years and older).  The course is a week-long
intensive exploration of the ecology of Greater Puget Sound's marine mammals
through discussion groups, lectures, and participation in original field work.
The program includes four days of vessel-based study (weather permitting).  In
addition, one day is spent touring research facilities on San Juan Island, and a
series of in-depth illustrated lectures conducted on the ecology of whales,
porpoises, and seals by leading researchers in the region.

  Four (4) quarters, 400 level credits may be available from Seattle Pacific
University, Seattle, WA.  (18 years and above only, costs extra, registration
takes place at the camp).

   Dennis Kelly, Professor of Marine Mammal Ecology at Orange Coast College,
will serve as group coordinator and  various guest research specialists and
Island Institute core staff  will serve as instructors and lecturers.

   Participants will reside on private, 500 acre Spieden Island in comfortable
safari-style tents on wooden floors.  The institute operates a 43' charter boat,
Navigator, which will be used for marine mammal observations.  Resident and
visiting speakers will present entertaining and informative programs.  During
free time, sea kayaks and snorkeling equipment will be available, as well as a
pool and jacuzzi.  Our chef will prepare delicious, healthy meals for
participants in the Lodge.

   Cost: $895 per person, includes room, board, boat trips, and lecturers.
             ($200 non-refundable deposite required to register).
             Does not cover transportation cost of individuals to and from
             pick up site at San Juan Island, City of Friday Harbor.
