I would be grateful if you would announce the following summer
courses (Working with Marine Mammals & Techniques and Theories of
Animal Training) to the MARMAM mailing list.
Thanks very much,
Jenifer Zeligs-Hurley, Ph.D.
California State University Monterey Bay and Moss Landing Marine
Laboratories http://slewths.mlml.calstate.edu/ offer one-week
intensive summer classes open to any individuals interested animal
training or in pursuing careers in the marine mammal field. In
addition, hands-on internships for people of all ages and levels of
experience are also available at the lab working with marine mammals.
The successful completion of both courses and a five-day internship
will earn a Certificate of Completion in Beginning Marine Mammalogy.
The classes' instructor, Dr. Jenifer Hurley has over 20 years of
terrestrial and aquatic animal training experience, across diverse
disciplines including research, public display, and studio and film work.

understanding of the discipline of animal training across many
different types of terrestrial and aquatic animals and techniques. It
provides an exceptional background in relevant animal behavior and
psychological principles related to the practical goal of modifying
animal behavior. These techniques will be demonstrated daily using
trained sea lions at Moss Landing Marine Labs where the course is
taught. Horses, birds, and other animals will also be used to
demonstrate these techniques.
Students will intern at least one day at the lab assisting in the
care and training of research-trained sea lions. Topics covered will

Desensitization, Aggression, and Practical Training. $430.00 + $39

background of marine mammal work in the Monterey Bay area. The
course will include live experiences with the marine mammals at Moss
Landing Marine Labs. This class will instruct students in captive
marine mammal husbandry (care and maintenance), training, basic
physiology, an overview of common research topics and techniques, as
well as public display, education, and current issues in marine
mammalogy. Students will intern at least one day at the lab
assisting in the care of research-trained California sea lions. They
will also gain experience in developing a resume, job interviews, and
