Marine Biodiversity Field Programs


Feeding Ecology of Marine mammals is an experiential course aimed at providing skills for biologists interested in field studies of marine mammal feeding ecology. Your days will be spent learning to collect data in a systematic manner, adding valuable skills to your resume. You will work as part of a team to formulate hypotheses based on a literature review, construct methods designed to predict where local species of marine mammals can be observed, learn to use equipment aimed at measuring environmental data, and methods of measuring and recording observations of foraging behaviors. You will Identify and quantify resources associated with marine mammal habitats, construct tools for the field as needed, and learn to test hypotheses in the field.
