Dear MARMAN Members,

I am a German M.Sc. cand. student planning a behavior project with Falk
Huettmann, Institute for Arctic biology, UAF on social mammals this summer
and we are looking for cooperation. 

I hold a research visa for the US.

Mainly our project is based on bear species, but we also want to include one
ape (Alouatta palliata) and one whale species - using the same method. The
bear research sights are pretty set up, but getting cooperation in
observation on a whale species brings up some difficulties. 

What we are searching for:


People doing field work on whales,
Being able to observe more individuals (2-10) at a time for 4-6 hours a day,
Space for one person (me) on the boat for approximately two weeks,
A place to stay during that time.

The best time frame for the field season would be end of June / July 2006.

As this project is a pilot study, we don't depend on a special species so
far. Further we don't have money to offer in exchange but we can offer
shared data, sampling of additional data (e.g. as useful to other
researchers or part of their ongoing program) and full acknowledgments in
our forthcoming papers. 

I want to ask you kindly if you see a possibility in cooperation or if you
know any options and possibilities to find good contacts for the Northern
Pacific region.

For more information please don't hesitate to contact me.

I am looking forward to hear from you. Any suggestion will be an appreciated
help to us.
With best regards,

Kim Jochum
